2012 is Olympic Year, and the Hadleigh Mountain Biking will have a significant impact on our Race HQ and our intended route.

HOWEVER, the date has been set for Sunday 22nd January 2012.

We will be making amendments to all and sundry as the months progress, so please ensure you keep yourself up to date with the race details here, on our website, and on our Face Book page

One of my all time favourite races.

As long as there will still be mud!!

Great, will be there....again

Mud essential but not as much as 'Flat Foo.ted' likes

Benfleet 15   22nd January 2012 

Hadleigh Country Park, Chapel Lane, Hadleigh, Essex, SS7 2PP

We apologise for the change of venue and route for this our Olympic year race, but our HQ has building work ongoing so we have had to move the HQ and start, hence we cannot now offer showers, etc.

The race will have a new start and finish area, and partly a new route (how exciting!) and we are hoping to negotiate with the Ranger to block book the parking fee at the HQ.

However, at this stage parking fees may apply at the Country Park. Thanks.

Keep up to date with all the info about the race at

www.BenfleetRunningClub.com/benfleet15

Online entries will be available shortly here, and also entry forms will be availble from our website.

We hope you stick with us during this slight change for the 2012 race, and can promise the same of everything else you love about the Benfleet 15 !

Race entries pass the 300 mark - 60 % full already. No adult entries on the day.
15/12/2011 at 18:01
Just done me entry - hope I've got in in time. Why is online entry £2 more expensive?.
16/12/2011 at 08:25
Most online entries are more expensive as Runners World charge a fee and the Club pay to post out your number to you, if you enter by post you would include a stamped address envelope with your entry form

Latest entry update

373 / 500 which means only 127 places left - we expect the race to be full in the next week or so.

Are you in yet ?

Check the latest entry list here.

Don't leave it too late and miss out.
