The Essex Way Ultra
The Essex Way is a long-distance trail which weaves though some of the most beautiful parts of Essex, between Epping and Harwich. The 100k ultra will run from Harwich, while the 50k will start from West Bergholt, both finishing at Pleshey Village Hall.
This flat trail is a mix of tracks, paths and short sections of quiet country roads.

The 100k runners will be supplied with 1 drop bag for use during the race. The Drop bag is your ‘crew’ - some of the mandatory kit can be distributed into this bag so you have it available during the race should you need it - but you don’t have to carry it all the time, enabling you to make decisions about what to carry when and not be weighed down unnecessarily!
