Inter-Counties 20 mile Road Race
Rochford, Essex - 3 March 2019

After a 13 year absence the Essex 20 mile road race is returning to Rochford in 2019 following cancellation of the proposed return last year.

Set to be held on 3 March, it is eight weeks before London and will give an ideal opportunity to "test" how the marathon training is going.

2019 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.
