COMPANY OF RUNNERS cordially invite you to join us for a circumnavigation of the nine noted villages named Roding in the beautiful Essex countryside of the Roding Valley.
Your challenge should you choose to accept it, is to self-navigate on a marathon distance trail course following the highways, byways, trails and tracks around Aythorpe Roding, Abbess Roding, Beauchamp Roding, Berners Roding, High Roding, Leaden Roding, Margaret Roding, Morell Roding and White Roding.
This is a mass start event starting at 9am in the morning.
Please note that there will be three checkpoints on the route approximately six/seven miles apart, along with the start and finish at Aythorpe Roding Village Hall.
There will be no entries available on the day, and runners are not permitted to run with dogs under UK Athletics regulations. This event is held under UK athletics rules. A Trail Running Association permit has been applied for. We cannot permit participants aged under 18.
The course is a mixture of surfaces so trail shoes are recommended.
It will suit runners who have completed a half marathon or greater distance, and who are comfortable at following navigation instructions, GPS files or by reading maps.
All finishers will receive a commemorative medal and technical T-Shirt.
** Online Registration closes at 8pm on the day before the race. **
