Race Information -   Entry Details

  • The race will start on Sunday 17th September 2023 at 11.00 a.m. This year it will start in Little Hyde Lane and will be run in reverse of the route used for the last few years finishing at the Anglo European School in Willow Green, Ingatestone. Thanks to the school's support, we will be using their parking facilities and the registration will take place there.

  • The route starts in Litle Hyde Lane (close to the A12 footpath tunnel - last year's finish) and goes up to Fryerning, around Beggar Hill and finishes at the foot of Frterning Lane at the Anglo-European School.  You can download a map of the route either as a Route - PDF or  Route - Doc.
    It is planned to hold the presentation in the school playground - weather permitting.

  • Over the years, the race has raised a great deal of money for the Ingatestone Boys' Own Club. Much more has been received for causes of the runner's chosen sponsorship. Moreover, the race is about personal achievement - run in a good friendly atmosphere with all smiles at the finish!

  • Prizes for at least first 3 Men, Women, Veterans, under 20's Men and Women and Team Awards.
    Plus First Ingatestone Residents: Men & Women and Under 18's.
