Organiser's Description

For Horses, Four Courses Event 3.  There are two courses of approx 8 miles and approx 4.5 miles. Start times at intervals between 10.30am and 12.00pm (long route) and 11am and midday (short route).  Results will be on the Mid Essex Casuals website after the event.  Registration will open at 10.00am and close at midday.

You'll set off in small groups with a written narrative route.  If you are unfamiliar with this style of event we can probably find someone for you to run with.  Walkers are also welcome - please start before 11.00 if walking the longer route.

Hosted by  Mid Essex Casuals and held under UK Athletics rules.  TRA permit applied for.  The series of four events will be raising funds for two Riding for the Disabled Association (RDA) groups in Suffolk. There is a memento for taking part in all four events and a prize draw for all those who do three of the four. 

Unfortunately TRA rules mean dogs are not allowed with participants but the pub is dog friendly and there are several lovely walks in the area for a supporter.

Entry fee; £5 affiliated £7 unaffiliated. 50P fee.  Entry fees are non-refundable - it may be possible to allow another runner to transfer to a place at the organiser's discretion.

Entry fee includes a £2 voucher to spend in the Rampant Horse Pub.  The venue is close to Needham Market Railway Station and accessible by public transport (check for engineering work!)- if driving please park with consideration on the High Street or near the station.  There is no bag storage area - please leave all your belongings in your car.
