Races update 12th January 2022:
Because of problems related to the Covid situation and other organisational problems it has been decided with regret that the proposed 5 & 10 Mile Running Races which were due to take place on Sunday 29th May 2022 will not now take place.
Our other event however, the Round The Island All Terrain Running Race will still take place as planned on Sunday 18th September 2022 (unless there are significant and unforeseen circumstances which prevent us from doing so). Full details of this event have already been posted on the 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.
