The Benfleet 15 is a challenging 15 mile multi-terrain course which includes the undulating Hadleigh Downs and the Canvey Island sea wall.
This years race saw 648 finishers battle rain, wind, heavy snowfall and mud that matched any cross country course we have run.
There are some tough climbs with the last mile being especially hard work.
Benfleet Running Club marshals were terrific and very encouraging - some of them were out in very exposed positions in today’s inclement weather.
The water stations were well stocked with water, juice, cola, chocolate, jellies and cheese!
Due to injuries and the clash with Fred Hughes 10, the Chaser contingent was not as big as in previous years but hopefully we will be back in strength next year.
I attended this show (the first of its kind) on 20th January 2018). It was like a mini-marathon expo but with talks from Dame Kelly Holmes, Jo Pavey and a bunch of Ultramarathoners! There were also some nutrition talks and gait analysis up for grabs (sadly, fully booked by my arrival).
I met and got a picture with Kelly Holmes and discovered that quite a few brands are stocked in the UK that I previously thought were only Stateside. I signed up for the Great North 10K in July (for a cool tech T-shirt and goodie bag) and ran the Saucony treadmill challenge (run fast for 1 minute without falling off).
They are planning to double the size of the event next year and have Paula Radcliffe as a headliner.
