Benfleet 15

2012 is Olympic Year, and the Hadleigh Mountain Biking will have a significant impact on our Race HQ and our intended route.

HOWEVER, the date has been set for Sunday 22nd January 2012.

We will be making amendments to all and sundry as the months progress, so please ensure you keep yourself up to date with the race details here, on our website, and on our Face Book page

  • Will certainly be there!!

    One of my all time favourite races.

    As long as there will still be mud!!

  • Great, will be there....again

    Mud essential but not as much as 'Flat Foo.ted' likes

  • Benfleet 15   22nd January 2012 

    Hadleigh Country Park, Chapel Lane, Hadleigh, Essex, SS7 2PP

    We apologise for the change of venue and route for this our Olympic year race, but our HQ has building work ongoing so we have had to move the HQ and start, hence we cannot now offer showers, etc.

    The race will have a new start and finish area, and partly a new route (how exciting!) and we are hoping to negotiate with the Ranger to block book the parking fee at the HQ.

    However, at this stage parking fees may apply at the Country Park. Thanks.

    Keep up to date with all the info about the race at

    www.BenfleetRunningClub.com/benfleet15

    Online entries will be available shortly here, and also entry forms will be availble from our website.

    We hope you stick with us during this slight change for the 2012 race, and can promise the same of everything else you love about the Benfleet 15 !

  • 264 now confirmed !!
  • Race entries pass the 300 mark - 60 % full already. No adult entries on the day.
  • Just done me entry - hope I've got in in time. Why is online entry £2 more expensive?.
  • Most online entries are more expensive as Runners World charge a fee and the Club pay to post out your number to you, if you enter by post you would include a stamped address envelope with your entry form
  • Latest entry update

    373 / 500 which means only 127 places left - we expect the race to be full in the next week or so.

    Are you in yet ?

    Check the latest entry list here.

    Don't leave it too late and miss out.

  • imageJust passed 400 today.image
  • I heard a rumour today that the first mud of the winter has been spotted on the Benfleet 15 course, more route updates to follow

  • Entry update 402 / 500 !
  • Is the start and finish in the same area?
    I realise the course is different from last year (this is my first time entering) but hubby has problems walking, so makes things easier if we start and finish a race in the same place or vicinity so he doesn't have to walk about....or at least not too far....so he can see me off and then cheer me home.
  • Start and finish is at the same venue, which is race HQ at Chapel Lane.
  • Thanks Karl...makes things much easier for hubby image
    Scared and excited to run this for the first time!
  • Signed up for this yesterday... have only ever done 12 miles before EEEEK. Just going to enjoy it and not worry about the time too much..

    Liz, are you the Liz with the Elf mate? image

    I think that is pretty much correct with a couple of small tweaks
  • Yep, that course is just an artist's impression of what it could be !
  • Hope it doesn't sell out by the time I get home today. Loved it last year, so much fun!
  • Online entries re-opened up to our race limit - be quick.
  •  We are just compiling the latest entry list, and have a few postal entries to deal with.

    Once we have done this we will know the exact numbers and may be able to re-open the online entry if there are any race places available.
