Raynedeer 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 which, for this year, has been relocated to the stunning Layer Marney Tower so that we can keep everyone as safe as possible! Due to the limit on numbers in this event we've added a brand new 3hr "After Dark" race - just add a light-up Rudolph nose (or a head-torch!) and you're all set!

Cartoon Capers - Double Trouble! (AM & PM events)

We couldn't decide on one event theme for Cartoon Capers 2020, so we've gone for two! One morning 6hr timed event and one in the afternoon as well! Two events, two bespoke medals! Choose one event or do the double!

This 10.70km multi terrain (but predominantly flat tarmac!) course, starts on the upper promenade at Holland On Sea, taking you along the seafront towards Frinton On Sea. It enters the picturesque Holland Haven country park, with great views across the stunning Country Park and Frinton golf club. At the turn around point there is a short sharp slope before heading back along towards Holland on Sea where you drop down on to the lower promenade to enjoy the views of the sandy beaches, before you head back to the upper promenade towards to the feed station to complete the lap. 

£32 - £38 (Early bird until 31/3/21)

Coastal Series Race 2 - "Seas the Day"

The second event in our 4 race coastal series for 2021 is a half marathon on the Essex coast. Each event within the 4 race series will have an individual bespoke medal with all 4 making up a set with a similar coastal theme. In the interests of making the medal something that can be utilised after the event, other than proudly hanging on your wall, should you wish to do so the ribbons can be removed and the hidden medal hangers enable the use of the medal as a coaster (forgive the pun!) for example or something similar. We are sure you'll love the design as much as we do! 

£25 - £29

Remembrance Day 2021

Join us on the 14th November 2021 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.

It's Rayne'ing Medals

Not been able to get to a race when the medal was too much bling to miss? Here is your chance to choose the medal that you have your eye on from one of our previous events.  

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!

Brightlingsea Challenge 2021

Now in its fourth year, why not join us for our Brightlingsea Challenge marathon and 6hr timed event on the Essex coastline. Typically, this brings out the extremes in the weather, with both snow and warm sunshine in the last 2 years! 

The undulating but predominantly flat, traffic-free looped trail course, will give you the opportunity to run a marathon or as many or as few laps as you wish, within the time limit of 6 hours. The loops will be 10.54km/6.55m in distance and so you will need to complete 2 laps for a half marathon, 4 laps to cover full marathon distance, and then if you choose to continue, the clock will be your only limiting factor!

£32 - £39 (Early bird available until 15/10)
