13 in 13 Marathon No.8 – Halstead & Essex Marathon

Steph and Matt

The next race in the 13 marathons in 13 months challenge is the Halstead & Essex Marathon.

Unlike the previous two races (the Saracens Marathon and The CATS Marathon of London) which we arranged ourselves, we are going to be running a normal route as part of a normal race!

We are also going to be joined by a few other runners who want to show their support to THE CATS FOUNDATION – if you want to join us then please sign up to the race by clicking here.

The course

The Halstead & Essex Marathon is one of the tougher races we will be completing in the 13 in 13 challenge. The race course is described below as shown on the event website:

    “The race is mainly through quiet and picturesque country lanes, undulating with small valleys. Many runners state this is the most beautiful marathon course they have ever run. 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.”

Having studied the route map, Dan and I are concerned that there are lot of hills throughout the race which will be tough on the knees!

The runners

For this marathon we are going to be joined by some familiar faces! If you want to run this race with us as well then please see below on how to sign up.

  • Daniel Lewi – looking forward to a race on his home patch
  • Daniel How – now known as “the mute” after his powerful, yet silent performance on the TV screen, he is excited about the next race
  • Matthew Lewi – has started to talk about running the rest of the marathons in the 13 in 13 challenge
  • Stephan Walsh – impressive performance in his first ever marathon in The CATS Marathon of London
