There are two Corporation carparks nearby: Barn Hoppitt carpark on Rangers Road, E4 7QH and the much larger Chingford Plain carpark on Bury Road, E4 6AR. Charges for both are payable via the Ringgo app.
Toilets and changing facilities are available at the Orion Clubhouse, which is 10 minutes walk away on Bury Road, E4 7QJ. There is no parking or drop off at the Clubhouse.
The course comprises a short, medium and long lap, plus out and back section to the finish, with races and approximate distances as follows:

This is a team and individual event with the first four Pitsea Running Club ladies and the first six Pitsea Running Club men to finish in their respective races scoring points for Pitsea Running Club in the Essex League.
Every Pitsea Running Club runner scores points as individuals in your age category. Age categories go up in five year slots – senior men/women then 40, 45, 50 etc., and if you complete four of the Essex League races you will be in the running for one of the awards that are given for the first three ladies and first three men in each age category at the end of the season.
Second claim members are welcome to run if your first claim club is not competing, but you won't be able to score for points.
Runners must wear their Pitsea Running Club colours.
As always, you don’t have to be fast, you don’t have to be experienced, you just need to be able to complete the race distance.
Sign up is on the day and free of charge.
