Join in the 10 mile Road Race. Run over an undulating course through urban Great Baddow, Galleywood and rural West Hanningfield.

This year the races are supporting City of Chelmsford Mencap, Riding for the Disabled (Barrow Farm) and League of Friends of Hargrave House, and Chelmsford Mildmay Charitable Trust.

If you wish to run for your preferred good cause you can.

The Great Baddow Charity Races has up to 2000 runners taking part. The 10 mile road race is run under UK Athletics rules. It’s all a really fun event with many stalls on the grounds, face painting, balloon magic and rides for the very young. The route is normally lined with people cheering the runners on.

Runners can enter on line at www.runnersworld.co.uk/baddow16

It all starts at the Recreation Ground in Great Baddow. The fun starts around 10.00 am and the races at 11.00 am
