The Event

Batemans-tower-400pxBrightlingsea Jog Walk Run returns to the traditional course and one one day format for the 2021 event on Sunday 12 September. Online entry now open!

Brightlingsea & District Rotary Club is proud to organise the Brightlingsea Jog Walk Run which is held annually in September in support of Essex & Herts Air Ambulance.

With Covid-19 restrictions now eased the event will return to it’s traditional one day format and will take place on Sunday 12 September 2021 starting at 11:00.  Registration will open from 10:00 until 10:45 outside All Saints Church and the race will start from just outside the church at the top of Moveron’s Lane, and will follow its traditional course down Moveron’s Lane to Alresford Creek and along the seawall back to Brightlingsea, finishing at the Millennium Gardens just behind Bateman’s Tower.

The course is approximately 4 miles long on a combination of gravel footpaths and country lanes and passes through some spectacular country and riverside scenery. The course is initially gently downhill and then flat making it suitable for all levels of walkers, joggers and runners. Dogs on leads are welcomed but horses and cycles are not permitted. The course is suitable for sturdy buggies.
