This race is organised by Springfield Striders who offer runners tasty cakes at the start. The event also plays host to the Essex AA Half Marathon Championship.
The start is a short walk from the village hall down the hill towards the Leather Bottle pub. From the start the course goes back past the village hall in a large figure of eight through High Easter and Bishops Cross returning towards Pleshey to enter the village through Back Lane turning right up a slight hill to the finish on the village hall field.
The majority of the course consists of winding, single track country roads so please keep to the left at all times unless directed otherwise by the marshals.
