Tiptree Road Runners annual 10 mile race is just a few weeks away. With over half the entry already sold, now is the time to enter.
Just 30 entries are left for the next race in the Essex Grand Prix series, the half marathon at Pleshey. Entries close on Sunday 14th September or when the 30 places are taken (whichever is the earlier).
This race covers the 82 miles of the Essex way from Epping Station to Harwich Old Lighthouse in 10 stages. The route is mostly cross country and can be difficult through crops and across ploughed fields. Nevertheless it is a very enjoyable day out in the most attractive rural parts of Essex (with an excellent fish and chip shop and pubs waiting for you at Harwich). The course is NOT marked and it is essential for all competitors to have reconnoitred their section before the day to avoid getting lost.
