Organiser's Description


The Ivybuild Braintree Track Marathon - Rescheduled to 27th May 2018 9:30am

Full Marathon distance (105 1/2 times round standard 400m running track)



The event will be held on our club running track at Braintree Leisure Centre.  

Car-parking: Free parking at Leisure Centre with plenty of spaces for runners.


Registration and race briefing:

Collect your race number on the morning of the event at our race HQ. There will be adequate signage to direct runners to race HQ to collect numbers and there will be a section available in the sports hall for preparation and to leave bags.

Race instructions: Race packs will be emailed out a couple of weeks before the event.

Entry fee covers the cost of the event and all finishers will receive a medal and technical t-shirt.


Water stations:

We will have 1 water station situated on the track and will also leave a table out for easy access for runners own fuel if required. Runners are responsible for any personal fuel/drinks.

Toilets will be available track side should the need occur!


Race Rules:

The event is a full marathon distance event, however completion of the event will be 105 1/2 laps of our running track starting at the 200m line. We have limited the entries to 80 people to avoid overcrowding. Remember, you will be running at different paces so if you need to overtake, try to avoid doing so on out side lanes on the bends as you will end up running a further distance! Overtaking is not allowed on the grass inside the track.


Results and Prizes:

Trophies for 1st 2nd and 3rd place male and females. Each runner will receive a finsher medal and a bespoke technical t-shirt. Please specify desired size on entry form.



We will be using chip timing to record times and laps throughout the event. This will therefore mean mats will be placed on the track so runners are reminded to take care when passing over the mats, especially after the tiredness sets in! We will attempt to inform all runners when they are approaching their final lap. We know that many runners will be wearing a Garmin or similar watch to track pace/miles/laps etc but we would like to remind you again that completion of the race is 105 1/2 laps. Remember that if you run on a lane other than the inside lane, you will run further than 26.2 miles!


Race Permit:

Provisional licence approved by Run Britain. Licence Number: 2018-31592.


Event Sponsors:

We would like to thanks our wonderful sponsors whom without the event could not be possible.
