Essex Way Relay 5th September – Sign up now
19 July 2021 - By Bill Smythe
The Essex way relay will return as a normal race this year on Sunday 5th September.
Sign up here or through Links/Team Event Entry. I am unable to guarantee which leg you will run but will always try to accommodate.
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.
Please let me know if you wish to run by entering through the link on the web site.
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
