2018 Essex 20 - Sunday 4th March
NEW VENUE – Rochford
After a 12 year absence we are pleased to announce that the Essex 20 is returning to Rochford in 2018.
Set to be held on 4th March it is 7 weeks before London and will give an ideal opportunity to “test” how the marathon training is going. It is not the same course for those that ran it in 2005 but a new spectator friendly 3 lap course which should present the opportunity for fast times.
2018 will see the third edition of the Inter County Match where the best endurance runners from Essex, Kent, Suffolk, Norfolk, Herts, Cambs, Beds and Sussex battle it out for individual and team honours. The race will also be Race 1 in the Essex Road Race Grand Prix for 2018.
Keeping with the philosophy of the past 4 years, Essex AA in conjunction with host club Southend AC, are keeping the entry fee at just £6 for affiliated runners who enter early (last year the race sold out by 8th November). No medal, no t-shirt, but a cup of tea/coffee for all runners.
