Writtle Wround 50km Trail Race
26 Jul 2020
ESSEX TRAIL EVENTS present THE WRITTLE WROUND 50KM
Sunday 26th July 2020. Mass Start at 9.30am Early start available at 8.30am for slower runners.
The Writtle Wround 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).
Please note that navigation is by narrative route description (4 sides of A4) provided on the day. There are no marshals or route markings. There is a link to a gpx file on our website, but all participants must carry the route description on the day. Even though abbreviated there is far more information on the route description than the gpx file. See here for comments on last year's race and an excellent blog by finishing-line.com.
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.
Please note there is a 7½ hour time limit. Cut offs will be 1h50m at 9 miles, 3h15m at 15 miles, 4h30m at 20 miles and 5h30m at 24 miles.
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 checkpoint closing times will remain the same.
£30 for UKA affiliated athletes, £32 unaffiliated.
Confirmation of entry will be sent to you by email (if supplied) to the address provided on the entry form.
