Description

Race Briefing - 9:15 am

Race Start - 9:30 am

A themed series, celebrating our sporting legends. As a three-time winner of the London Marathon, three-time New York Marathon champion, and champion of the Chicago Marathon on one occasion and also the women's marathon world record holder since 2003! Is there a better sporting legend to kick off this themed series down on the Essex coast?

Brightlingsea is a small historical sailing town with much to offer the day visitor or as a base to explore the surrounding towns and countryside. http://www.brightlingsea-town.co.uk

Today Brightlingsea is a thriving town with many interesting old buildings set amongst a town centre of friendly mainly independent shops. The narrow streets lead down to the Town Hard where you can spend some leisurely time to watch the comings and goings, see families enjoying crabbing from the town jetty or disembarking from the ferry or visiting yachts.

From the Town Hard you can take a leisurely stroll along the promenade lined with colourful beach huts, past the open air swimming pool to Batemans Tower where you will find a café, children’s playground, skateboard park and the start of your next challenge!


The almost completely flat, traffic free, looped trail course, will give you the opportunity to run 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!


With an aid station at the end of every lap, you will have the ability to fuel yourself without having to carry everything you might need. You may leave a bag with your specific requirements at the aid station, for you to raid as you see fit! Alternatively, there will be flapjacks, fruit and nuts, and also water and squash, should you feel like a change!


An opportunity to run on a fast, lapped course, without the need to carry your usual ‘clobber’ and with a sought after, unique, bespoke medal, this promises to be a fantastic event for runners of all abilities. UKA Affliated Member & Race Permit issued by TRA and a 100 Club qualifiying event.
