Come and join us in August for our 12 hour endurance event. The course is entirely within Great Notley Country Park on the footpaths and trails around the lakes, park and open spaces. You begin running at 10:30am and then you can choose how you wish to tackle the event. Complete a couple of laps and have a rest before continuing again or keep it going steadily for as long as possible, it is entirely up to you! There is no minimum distance that you must complete and you certainly don't have to run for 12 hours! 

Enter as a solo runner and take on OutRun12 yourself, or why not find a running buddy to compete as a pair or grab a group of 4 and then enter as a quad! Take it in turns to run, and see if you can rack up the mileage faster than the other teams!

Roman River Trails - 10k, Half Marathon and Marathon distances.

With three distances, this trail event allows you to participate in a 10k, Half Marathon or Marathon on the same day. All distances take in the sights and sounds of the Roman River valley near Colchester, with the marathon crossing the river no more than 8 times! The route is predominantly hard-packed trail with parts of tarmac and grass footpath sections along the way.

Due to the up and down nature of the river valley, there will be some hills!  The half marathon loop, which will be half of the marathon course, will take in the villages to the West of Colchester and the surrounding areas. 

10km £15-19.50, Half Marathon £22.50-£27, Marathon £35-42

Remembrance Sunday 2020

Join us on the 8th November 2020 for our truly memorable Remembrance Day special event with a unique atmosphere. Choose from a trail marathon or 6hr timed event. We will have an 11am silence marked within the race itself and it would be great to have the entire field taking a slight breather to remember those military personnel who have given their lives over the years in service to our great country. The Last Post will be played live prior to the event start, as we have done in previous years. UKA certified event, race permit issued by the TRA.

'Rayne'deer Run (2020)

If you fancy joining Rudolph and his friends just before Christmas to bank some pre-festive mileage, why not join us at the 3rd anniversary of our Raynedeer run, a 6hr challenge event and trail marathon at our tried and tested Flitch Way Country Park venue.

Stretching for 15 miles through the Essex countryside between Braintree and Bishops Stortford, is The Flitch Way. It is the site of the original Bishops Stortford to Braintree Branch line, a single track railway, and was opened in 1869 and finally closed in 1969. Nowadays it is an important place for wildlife, and a perfect place for your next running achievement, whatever your chosen distance!

Full Price £37/39 - Early Bird Prices £32/34 until 01/04/20
