Essex Trail Events’ first ever ultra starts and finishes at the excellent facilities of Writtle University College and visits the scenic villages of Blackmore, Willingale, Good Easter and Pleshey and incorporates stretches of the Essex Way, St Peter’s Way and the Saffron Trail.
Apart from two marshalled crossings of the A414 the route is on footpaths, tracks and minor country lanes. The route is mainly through arable country and reasonably flat throughout. (The lowest point is 85 feet and the highest 335 feet). Navigation is by narrative route description provided on the day. We may provide details before the day and possibly provide a gpx file but we do not guarantee to do this.
There will be checkpoints at Blackmore village hall (9 miles), Willingale cricket pavilion (15 miles), Good Easter sports pavilion (20 miles) and Pleshey village hall (24 miles). All checkpoints will provide hot and cold drinks, snacks and will have toilet facilities and shelter. There will probably be some mobile drink stations in addition.
There will be a light meal and showers available at the finish at the college.
All entrants will receive a T shirt and all finishers a medal.
There are excellent free parking facilities at the college.

Due to demand there will also be an 8.30am start for slower runners. However the first checkpoint at 9 miles will not open until 10.15am. Anyone arriving earlier will have to wait until then to continue. All cut offs will remain the same.
