This Team event will  follow the historical plaques located throughout Rayleigh, and is a social running event for individuals and teams of up to 3 people.
First held in 2019.

Bespoke Medal to all finishers.
You are invited to run, jog, walk or volunteer at this event.


 Teams will be given random locations for Rayleigh Heritage Plaques, showing various points of historical interest. Teams must organise the best route for all locations, and then find, visit and take a selfie with their team at each location, returning to retrieve more locations as necessary.

We estimate the distance to complete the race will be 7-10 miles – if you don’t get too lost.


If you’re worried about the distance, although the total distance may be 7 miles it is broken up in 6 sets, so there is a recharge option when you get back to the start each time, to collect your next set.
Plus they’ll be clues to solve at each plaque so you’re not running flat out all the time.

Selfies required for some clues and you’ll need to answer specific clues at each location to prove you’ve visited. Penalties for incorrect answers.

Runners, joggers, walkers all welcome  and if you’re on your own, just enter and we’ll pair you up with two other runners.

Bespoke Medal to all finishers.

Prizes for most points per Team. (tally of time and points)
