The Essex Way Ultra

The Essex Way is a long-distance trail which weaves though some of the most beautiful parts of Essex, between Epping and Harwich. The 100k ultra will run from Harwich, while the 50k will start from West Bergholt, both finishing at Pleshey Village Hall.

This flat trail is a mix of tracks, paths and short sections of quiet country roads.

These events will be cupless as we try to reduce the environmental impact of our events. We will still be providing drinks at the checkpoints but you will need your own cups.
