11 September 2020 - By Bill Smythe

Please let me know if I have missed anyone or you cant run. Also if you would like to run a second leg in another team, this can be run any time during September so it could be done over a couple of weekends.

For those asking to run together, I have put you on the same leg in different teams.

    Hi Bill
    I hope you are well. Not sure what this virtual business is ha ha. Jacob and I did a through walk along the whole of the Essex Way this week over 3 days, wild camping at Little Leighs and then West Bergholt at the end of day 1 and day 2 respectively. This meant we walked more than a marathon each day and closer to 30 miles on the last day, which my knee and blisters will testify was tough at times. However, I would recommend this to all – we had a great time. As for the virtual run, I have only really just seen this post and right now, cannot contemplate even walking let alone running. However, good luck to all members of the teams! Catch up soon – I see that PR may be coming back by October perhaps according to the weekly blogs.
    Regards Leo

    Hi Bill – sorry I am going to have to drop out of running my Essex Way leg as I am having treatment on my leg (knee and IT band). If I can do it and am available I will help out ferrying runners back to their starting point if needed!

  5. Bill Smythe says:
