Essex 10K


We are excited to announce that after a fantastic first year, the Essex 10k will be returning on Sunday 16th September 2018, raising money to support Essex Waterways and the running of local Chelmer and Blackwater Navigation. The run begins at Hoe Mill Lock and winds through the scenic countryside of Ulting, Maldon and Langford.

Supporting Local Waterways - Sponsorship and Fundraising

All money raised by this years event will go towards the important work being done by IWA's subsidiary, Essex Waterways, on the Chelmer and Blackwater, to keep the Navigation a great place for the public to enjoy.  To help us achieve as much as possible we would encourage you to raise sponsorship - please contact to find out more.

Volunteering and Spectators

We welcome volunteers and spectators to join us on the day. Enjoy a picnic or take a walk along the scenic waterway and be first in line to cheer the runners in on their return.
