COMPANY OF RUNNERS cordially invite you to our seven-mile festive frolic to give your holiday season a running start.
Your challenge is to self navigate on a trail course in the Essex countryside around Great Notley and Braintree.
Every competitor will be required to deposit a wrapped Secret Santa gift (up to the value of £5) with the Company of Runners Elves at the start of the event, and then will get their choice of gifts on their return to the finish.
This is a timed event with a start window between 9 and 9.30am. Competitors may start at any time within this window.
Please note that there are no checkpoints on the route, just the start and finish at the Prince Louis pub.
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 trail is a mixture of surfaces so trail shoes are recommended.
All abilities welcome particularly those new to trail running.
** Online Registration closes at 8pm on the day before the race. **
