Inter-Counties Road Race
Rochford, Essex - 4 March 2018

After a 12 year absence the Essex 20 mile road race is returning to Rochford in 2018.

Set to be held on 4 March, it is seven weeks before London and will give an ideal opportunity to "test" how the marathon training is going.

2018 will see the third edition of the Inter-County match where the best endurance runners from Essex, Kent, Suffolk, Norfolk, Hertfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Bedfordshire, Sussex and, from this year, Hampshire battle it out for individual and team honours.
