Essex 20m
Sunday 06 March 2022, 09:30


 The Essex 20 is held every year in March and is an ideal race to run in the build up to the Marathon season. However, it’s not just a training run as it has a long history.

The venue for the event in 2022 is at Debden Airfield. This disused airfield has a fast, flat, tarmac course with no sharp corners. 

The race is part of the Essex Road Running Championships with county medals awarded to the first 3 affiliated runners in male and female individual age categories as well as teams.

Essex Athletics Association aims to provide a quality event at the best value to runners, so this means there will be no finishing medals (apart from the County prize medals) or t-shirts. This year, we’re offering you the option to plant a tree to commemorate your participation, instead of receiving our event medal/t shirt. Planting a tree is one of the best things you can do to fight climate change, as they remove carbon dioxide from the air as they grow. They also provide a habitat for a wide range of the UK’s most endangered and loved species, and create clean air for us to breathe. Your tree will be planted in Scotland to grow as part of a whole new forest full of native broadleaf tree species. You’ll receive a certificate that includes a picture of your tree, details of the species, and a unique geo-location address so you can even go and visit. Purchase your commemorative tree for £2.60 during the registration process and create a legacy for the planet.
