Braintree - Sunday 27th April 2014


Results are available at and as a pdf file: here. These results were updated on or before 3rd May 2014 due to a transposition of bibs 55 & 56. This has changed the names at race positions 172 & 282 which in turn has changed the gender positions between these two points. We are sorry for the confusion.

Message from the Race Director, Paul Miller:
Thank you all who helped at the Braintree 5 Race. Without the vast amount of help in whatever form the Race could not have gone ahead. Whether you were marshalling out on the road, dealing with parking in the car park, or one of the other many helpers, you all played a vital role ensuring the smooth running of the event and some very grateful runners. You will appreciate that many months of planning go into the Race every year and it is virtually impossible to cover every single problem which may occur, but with your help any small difficulties were overcome and we ended up, hopefully, with an enjoyable day for all concerned Thank you all once again and here's to the next one Paul.

The route goes down Queenborough Lane past Rayne Station, into Rayne Village and then onto the Flitch Way for a few hundred metres before turning back into Rayne, and back home.
