Basildon Aquathlon - 10th April - MARSHALS

Hi Everyone, It's that time of year again when we call upon the services of probably the best marshal team in Essex.

If you're competing then please consider yourself as 'volunteered' as your services will be required for the junior event first off but what we really need is our trusty team of non-competing members for set-up and marshalling of the adult event. Please let me know BY EMAIL preferably so I can contact you when needed but feel free to comment below as well. Contact me at: aquathlon@east-essex-tri-club.co.uk and I'll add you to the list.

Orion 15 - 2nd April 2016

Orion Harriers proudly presents the legendary ‘Orion 15’ – the 62nd running of this great race – voted in the top 50 UK races by ‘Runners World’ readers.

The race starts at 10:00am on 2nd April 2016 with the course taking runners through the ancient bridle paths and tracks of beautiful Epping Forest. There are some testing climbs not usually found in the ‘flat’ county of Essex and there is plenty of mud.

This year we have a new and improved course which takes in some new trails and new parts of the forest – so a PB is guaranteed!

We anticipate welcoming back the many runners who return year after year, but we also look forward to seeing those who are trying this long-established race for the first time. The race always throws up some interesting and challenging conditions, irrespective of the weather, and is guaranteed to leave you with a smile on your face.

More information about the Orion 15 can be found on our website here: Orion Harriers.

A minimum donation of £10 is respectfully suggested

Deadline for entries is the 28th March and No entries on the day. Runners will have to collect their race numbers on the day from the Orion clubhouse. It is advised to arrive with plenty of time to collect your number and prepare for the race
