Mersea Island Lions Club are pleased to announce the resumption of our two popular running race events on Mersea Island in 2022.

It has been such a shame that the Covid epidemic has forced us to cancel these events for the past two years. We know they are greatly enjoyed by runners and spectators alike and they are also an important source of the funds we raise for local good causes, so we are all looking forward to getting together again and enjoying these fun events in the delightful surroundings of our special island!

This year because of the way the tides fall we have had to move our Round the Island Race from June to September and bring the 5 & 10 Mile Races forward to the end of May.

These are the new dates:

5 & 10 Mile Running Races – Sunday 29th May 2022

Round The Island All Terrain Running Race – Sunday 18th September 2022

We hope to open registration for the 5 & 10 Mile Races within the next few weeks.

We are still working on some of the details but basic information for both events is now available on our Race Information Pages (‘Main Menu’, ‘Races’) for more information

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.
