The Easter Eggstravaganza totals four races across the Easter bank holiday weekend. These are hosted by ourselves at Little Baddow, Mid Essex Casuals, Grange Farm & Dunmow Runners, and Springfield Striders.
The races are as competitive as you want them to be and entries are received from walkers, plodders, joggers, runners and racers (whichever category suits you!). The events are non-marshalled and Entrants are given a set of written instructions and set off at a time of their choosing usually within an hour or so window. Courses are mainly off-road and it can be quite fun interpreting the instructions.
Most events start and finish at pubs or cafes with tea, biscuits and cake and other refreshments to enjoy once you’ve finished.
