I'm running for Mid Essex Casuals.  Ran it last year for the 1st time and loved it.  Certainly not for the faint hearted!

Hey guys, whereabouts are you all based in Essex? I'm down in Basildon (don't hold that against me!)

Morning steve here's a little info if you need:

Date: Sunday 16th December
Venue: The Cricket Pavilion, STEBBING (Behind White Hart Pub)
Parking: Follow direction to car park which is opposite Stebbing Primary School. Marshal's will be visible for parking arrangements.
Race Start Location: About a 5 minute walk from the Cricket Pavilion
Start Time: 10.30am

About the course ....

The course is full of water and mud, which hopefully on the day won't be frozen. The streams are full and there are extra areas of new low lying water that you will be going through. There are areas of boggy ground where you may lose a trainer, so please double knot your laces. The bogs are smelly so don't wear your best kit.

Gavin, I have to say I really enjoyed the race on Sunday.  It was wet, and very muddy, but great fun.  Already looking forward to next years race!
