A 1 day ultramarathon allowing you to take in all the beauty of the Essex Riviera, organised by c2c on behalf of the Railway Children Charity. All monies raised from entry fees and donations will go directly to the charity.

With a choice of 50 or 30 mile distances the runners and walkers will register at Fenchurch Street Station before boarding a private train that will take them to the 50 mile start at Upminster and the 30 mile start at Tilbury. The route will in general follow along the Thames going east, utilising the London Loop and England Coast National Trails. The going underfoot is mainly tarmac with some hard trails in sections. The scenery is a mixture of urban, marsh land and river bank, with some amazing views of this part of the Thames and Greater London.
