Mersea Island Lions Club are pleased to announce our Virtual All Terrain Half Marathon to take place on 26th and 27th June 2021. This event will replace our popular Round the Island Race which we have regretfully had to cancel for a second year because of the ongoing Covid crisis.

Virtual running works exactly the same as any other type of running but the difference is that the entered race can be run at any location convenient to you. All you have to do is enter the race and provide evidence that you have done it. That’s it!

However you take the challenge, you will be supporting the Mersea Island Lions and raising funds for worthwhile causes within the community and further afield.

For more information and registration details, please go to our Race Information Page.

The Mersea Island Lions Club have been organising our popular running races for several years now as part of their programme of community events. All profits from these events are donated annually to a number of local charities. The Lions Club of Mersea Island was chartered in 1978; its members wishing to help the less fortunate people within the Mersea Island area. Their aims were simple:

  • Community Service,
  • Fund-raising to help the less fortunate within the community and further afield,and
  • Have fun and fellowship whilst doing it.
