The Baddow Race is back!

For the last 40 years home to the Baddow Races has been the Millenium Centre at Great Baddow.

Note the date for this year - Sunday 18th May with a new start time of 10am for the 10 Mile race, and shortly afterwards for the 2 mile fun run.

We are licensed by UK Athletics under licence 2024-46952 and registered with BARR the British Association of Road Runners. Our course has been measured and certified by UK Association of Course Measurers under course number 18/190.

This event takes a huge amount of effort to organise and we are always looking for willing hands to help us deliver a first-class day not only for runners but for the community of Chelmsford.

We raise thousands of pounds for our local charities and aim to provide
a fun day out for all the family as well as the runners.
