Hiya Liz, yes you are on the entry list - thanks.

Thanks Karl!

Hi karl will be entering again this year. was just wondering if you know where it will be starting from this time around  

24/10/2012 at 07:19

Looks like the Hadleigh castle start that we had this year.

Hiya all,

the provisional route will be exactly as our route for the 2012 race. We may need to tweak some parts of it to avoid any Olympic remnants from the mountain biking but essentially same start and finish areas at Hadleigh Country Park.

(plus we may also tweak it in places to make it a little bit "interesting"   )

Nearing the 100 runners entered, so if you want a place please enter early as we will not have entries on the day, and due to this course we have limited entry.

If anyone has a Garmin export from the 2012 Race I would be grateful for a copy sent to me for reference please...?

The Benfleet 15

20th January 2013

Provisional Course (subject to change, if not muddy enough!)

Hi, Trying to plan a London Marathon build up (first time), and this distance will be spot on for my build up. Is this all off road?

Thank you

Hiya, it is mostly offroad with stretches on gravel path and some pavements around Benfleet and Leigh stations.

Ideal London warmup without the joint crunching roads.

I'm thinking about doing this one as its sounds so good. I'm just trying to decide if its worth the 2 hour drive there and same back?

02/01/2013 at 16:00

Hi Karl - just seen on the start list that I'm down as M40 - should be F40 ! How is the mud ? Have been practising losing shoes in the boggiest bits of Wimbledon common and Richmond park ready for the 20th. Looking forward to it as haven't run this one for a couple of years.

Thanks - Nic T

Oh no - I've talked a friend into running this with me & have just realised that I never entered it myself & now it's full! Fingers crossed for some 'on the day' entries, otherwise I wonder if there will be any dropouts?
