Essex Way Relay 3/9/23 – Save The Date – Sign Up

3 July 2023 - By Annalise Tye

The Essex way relay will be on Sunday 3rd September-block your diaries!

This is a 10 leg relay from Epping to Harwich crossing our lovely countryside.  The relay is made up of 10 stages of various distances – see below. The race is run as a relay but there is no handover to the next runner and scores are done on finishing places so there is no pressure to get to the finish before a set time. The Essex Way is a fantastic scenic route and follows fairly well defined paths. The course is not marshalled but instructions are available from the Essex Way website. A recce of the route is recommended.

STAGE 1 EPPING – CHIPPING ONGAR 7.5 miles
STAGE 2 CHIPPING ONGAR – GOOD EASTER 9.5 miles
STAGE 3 GOOD EASTER – LITTLE LEIGHS 9.5 miles
STAGE 4 LITTLE LEIGHS – CRESSING 10.1 miles
STAGE 5 CRESSING – GREAT TEY 9.4 miles
STAGE 6 GREAT TEY – WEST BERGHOLT 5.7 miles
STAGE 7 WEST BERGHOLT – DEDHAM 11.2 miles
STAGE 8 DEDHAM – BRADFIELD 8.0 miles
STAGE 9 BRADFIELD – RAMSAY 5.3 miles
STAGE 10 RAMSAY – HARWICH LIGHTHOUSE 5.5 miles

We will also be running leg 5 starting at Cressing, captained once again by Steven Alder (thanks Steven). We will need some volunteers please to record runners as they depart and arrive and to provide some water at the finish as well as team spirit, so please sign up below using the volunteer form if you would like to help (champs point always available!).

More details can be found on the Essex Way website. It includes pdfs of the route.

There is also a handy page here where someone has created GPX files of all the routes as a guide.

It would be great to get a few WRC teams out to run what is a beautiful scenic route along Essex. Please sign up below including your leg preference (if you have one).

Thanks,

Annalise & Jodee
