Well what a day! After two long years and great anticipation, we finally staged our 25th anniversary Billericay 10k.

2021 year saw a cut-down, covid-friendly version with the presentation held outside for the first time, but unfortunately meaning the club couldn't provide the usual refreshments, shop or massage. 
Running conditions were picture perfect: bright and chilly with very little wind. Race numbers held up pretty well - slightly down from last year, but still a healthy 609 finishers. Runners are understandably still grappling with the ongoing challenges of the covid pandemic so it was great to see so many enthusisatic competitors.
  
First place in the men’s race went to Chemsford AC's Ben Felton, who ran the race in 32:55 and earned himself £100 and a special Striders' Salver. In second place was Shane Boxall of Southend on Sea and in third James Rygate.
  
The women’s race saw a new winner this year - Thurrock Harriers' Kathryn Spring, who also scooped the V35 award. Consistent achiever Eleanor Johnson came second for the second time and third place went to Leigh on Sea's Stephanie Migliorini. 
 
The Male Youth Award for young runners under 21 years old was won by James Ferrant (40:53) and the Female award was won by Jemma Ager (51:28).
  
The Women’s Team Award went to Leigh-On-Sea Striders and the Men’s to Thurrock Harriers. Both teams retained the team titles from 2019.
  
The club has already been overwhelmed with messages on social media and appreciation in particular for the  support given throughout by the marshals, epitomised by the emotional scenes as the final runners crossed the finishing line in to the embrace of their team mates. This was a truly special moment which we will never forget.
  
The club would like to thank the incredible enthusiasm and support for the event shown by the running community, who managed to fill the 800 places within a week of launching, and by its long-term sponsors Ground Control and Fisher Jones Greenwood. The club charity this year is the Forget Me Not Cafe, which supports those living with dementia and their carers.
  
We welcome all feedback - good or not so good - and use it to help improve the experience for runners, supporters and local residents.
