Brightlingsea Jog Walk Run Supporting Essex Air Ambulance
Brightlingsea Jog Walk Run isÂ held annually in support of Essex Air Ambulance on the second Sunday of September. Participants complete a scenic and easy 4 mile course through spectacular countryside and along the banks of the River Colne.
Brightlingsea & District Rotary Club is proud to organised the Brightlingsea Jog Walk Run which is held annually in support of Essex Air Ambulance on the second Sunday of September. The event starts from Brightlingsea’s historic twelfth century All Saints’ Church.
The course is 4 miles long on a combination of quite rural roads and riverside footpaths. From the start you meander down delightful country lanes to the edge of picturesque Alresford Creek, from where you follow the seawall onto the lower reaches of the River Colne with its beautiful views across the water and marshes to Fingringhoe and Mersea Island. The finish will be located at Brightlingsea’s famous landmark Bateman’s Tower where there will be family fun for all.
The event is open to individuals, teams and families. Registration can be completed online in advance (entry will open in July) or on the day at All Saints’ Church from 09.30am. The start will be at 10.30am on Moverons’ Lane outside All Saints’ Church.
All funds raised by the event will go to support the vital work of Essex Air Ambulance and competitors are encouraged to also support this vital service through individual sponsorship. There are lots of way to get involved, either as a participant, as a volunteer helping on the day, or by coming to the Finish to welcome everyone home and join in the fun at Bateman’s Tower.
