the B Team entered a full Green Belt relay team this May ( and we came 12th out of 29 very competitive teams! We'd like to thank all of those who took part and look forward, hopefully, to doing it again next year.

It's going to be a hoot! The Toot Hill Hoot!!

Any of you that have run The Green Belt Relay or The Essex Way Relay will know Toot hill as a changeover point. If you're like us, you'll have seen the Green Man and thought it looked nice but never been in! Now's your chance!!

A Nine Mile Trail

A nine mile trail with a difference!! This time you'll get a weather proofed A4 easy to read and carry Ordnance Survey map with the whole route clearly marked. It clearly shows all the paths, tracks, woods, roads- the lot! The 9 mile course is overlaid so you won't (can't?) get lost.All you'll have to do is follow the map over 9 miles of varied, undulating(hilly), testing and scenic Essex countryside. There's very little road as well.

We consider this to be a bit more difficult than a normal route narrative trail, so it might be fun to go around in pairs to share the decision making... especially if you're new to O S map reading.

So if you want an alternative to the Brentwood half with a really friendly pub at the end, come and give it a go.
