Benfleet 15m @ Hadleigh Country Park
Jan 20 @ 10:30 am – 1:15 pm

Following yet another fantastic year the Benfleet 15 returns for a 29th time year in 2019. In 2018 the race sold out in record time and attracted over 650 runners who tackled the challenging route.

Using a challenging multi terrain single lap course starting in Hadleigh Country Park, the route takes runners through the undulating Hadleigh Downs, along sections of the Benfleet and Canvey Island Sea Wall before finishing back at the Country Park.

There will be medals and t-shirts on offer for all finishers.

The race is organised by Benfleet Running Club with chip timing services provided by Nice Work.

In addition to the main 15 mile race there is also a 1 mile family fun run open to all ages starting at 9.45 am, with entries taken on the day (all children under the age of ten need to be accompanied by an adult.)

The race attracts a large field and will sell out, so an early entry is advised. Runner’s must not run under someone elses name, anyone spotted will be disqualified.

Tarpley 10/20m @ Thurston Community College (Beyton Campus)
Feb 24 @ 10:30 am – 2:30 pm

Named after Bert Tarpley, one of the earliest Pacer members and former club President, this event is very much part of the local race calendar. The course passes through beautiful countryside and is run along gently undulating country lanes.

This event is run over two distances, 10 miles and 20 miles, and the latter fits perfectly into the training calendar for a spring Marathon. Each junction is marshaled and the course is well signed. Please note the roads are lightly used but are not traffic-free so keep left at all times.

Finally, there will be a cut-off time of four hours from the start of the 20m race. This means there will be no marshals or support vehicles from 2.30pm.

20 mile race starts: 10.30am

10 mile race starts: 11.30am
