Orion Harriers proudly presents the legendary ‘Orion 15’ – the 62nd running of this great race – voted in the top 50 UK races by ‘Runners World’ readers.
The race starts at 10:00am on 2nd April 2016 with the course taking runners through the ancient bridle paths and tracks of beautiful Epping Forest. There are some testing climbs not usually found in the ‘flat’ county of Essex and there is plenty of mud.
This year we have a new and improved course which takes in some new trails and new parts of the forest – so a PB is guaranteed.
We anticipate welcoming back the many runners who return year after year, but we also look forward to seeing those who are trying this long-established race for the first time. The race always throws up some interesting and challenging conditions, irrespective of the weather, and is guaranteed to leave you with a smile on your face.
** this race demands a basic level of fitness and a cut-off point of 10 min per mile pace will be enforced at the half-way stage**
