Start / Finish Location
Felsted Village Hall,
Parking - There is some parking in the hall car park and we are working on some more space.
Public transport - There is no train station in Felsted but its a very short cab ride from Braintree or Dunmow stations
Facilities - Toilets and changing and secure bag storage but no showers
Terrain / Course:
The course is almost all smooth flat gravel based hard path with a tiny bit of tarmac to start and finish each loop. it will be runnable in all weather and with only a couple of short bridges over major roads will be a truly fast course. Certainly one that can be run hard.
There will be no navigation needed as its a straight line on an old disused railway line and the turns on and off the line will all be marked, perfect for those who cant find their keys let alone their way!
The path is well sheltered with trees so even in bad weather its well protected from the elements.
The out and back element of each loop mean you will be constantly seeing others and can support them or they support you so it should be a very friendly event.
Starting in Felsted Essex its a perfect course for a first 100 mile race, regular support every 4.3 miles and access to your drop bag every 8.6 miles and with no hills and an easy trail it will suit runners who want fast times and a first hundred under their belt.
There are also 30 and 50 mile options for those not quite ready for 100miles.
