Remembrance Run Essex

Carver Barracks, Wimbish, Saffron Walden, Essex

Organiser's Description

This is a flat and fast traffic free course on a disused tarmac airfield at Carver Barracks, near Saffron Waldon, in Essex, on the weekend closest to Remembrance Day. The event will consist of a half marathon, 10k and 5k races, and a 1 mile Fun Run.

Carver Barracks lends itself to running. The surface is perfect and incredibly flat, with no sharp corners - this is a course you can instill your faith into when searching for a PB!

Help us to honour our fallen heroes and raise money for two fantastic military charities - The Royal British Legion and The Felix Fund.
