Halstead Leisure Centre
The Halstead & Essex Marathon incorporates many quiet and picturesque country lanes.
The race starts at the Halstead Leisure Centre, Colne Road, Halstead. There’s an ‘out-run’ from Halstead through Pebmarsh into the lanes of the Essex/Suffolk border, where the route enters a 10 ½ mile loop, most of which is run twice. After completing most of the second lap there’s a different mile-long ‘in-run’ back to Race HQ. The route is almost all on secondary roads but there is a short section of grass (400m) in the final mile.
The 2008 Halstead & Essex Marathon race was rated one of the top 5 UK marathons by Runner's World, Britain's best selling running magazine.
