WRC Trail Run – Sunday 1st July, Little Baddow

25 June 2018 - By James Blackshaw

The 3rd in this year’s series of trail runs will take place in Little Baddow, this Sunday at 9:00am.

The run will start and finish near to Papermill Lock (great for an ice-cream or cold drink afterwards), and we’ve been given permission to park in the bigger car park at the lock (thanks to James Crisp and the owners of the Lock.) Look for me standing outside and I’ll let you in.

It is a 10 mile route through the footpaths and lanes around Little Baddow and Danbury, and really encapsulates what trail running is all about. It is a little undulating in places, and if this balmy weather continues it could be warm, so please bring a drink.

I can provide a gpx file if anyone wants it, but because of the wiggly nature of the route we will try to stick as one group, and at a leisurely pace.

See y’all there!



  1. Bill Smythe says:

    Can you send me the gpx please James.

  2. Sue Smith says:

    Me too please, I’d like to see if I can gauge its suitability for bringing the dog, assuming it’s not stupidly hot!

  3. Sylvia Bullen-Bell Sylvia Bullen-Bell says:

    Can you send me the gpx too please James. I am undecided as I am an ambler and in no hurry, so may do this on my own another time. I did a 10 miler last Sunday and averaged around 11.30 to 12.30 pace which is deathly slow for you lot to wait for me.

  4. James Blackshaw James Blackshaw says:

    Hi Sylvia, I’ve sent you the GPX via FB messenger, let me know if your have any problems.

  5. Natalie Lilley says:

    Sylvia, I’ll be at a very similar pace and was planning to plod around on my own

  6. Matthew Jordan Matthew Jordan says:

  7. James Blackshaw James Blackshaw says:

    I’ve updated the gpx file for this, but don’t worry too much if you’ve already downloaded the previous one.
