Saffron Trail Ultra

Date & Location

Southend, Essex

Organiser’s Description

The Saffron Trail Ultra is a very challenging 70 mile Ultra starting at Southend seafront and running across Essex to Saffron Walden in the North East of the county. The event has been run overnight in past years but this year it will it will start at 4am and the cut off time will be midnight - so you should get to see the sunrise and set during the run, with only a few making it before darkness falls! The route is mostly on footpaths and bridleways with some country roads and lanes. It is constantly undulating and can range from dry hardpack to muddy trails, depending on the weather and the British Summer. It's a scenic route, with some great views to be had, and very pretty villages and towns to run through.
