HARP24 is the 24 hour running festival in South Essex, raising funds to beat homelessness one stride at a time

Take on as an ultra-marathon challenge as a solo runner, or with your relay squad of up to 12 friends, and compete from midday on Saturday through to midday on Sunday, with the winners in each category completing the most laps of the scenic five-mile trail course. New for 2024 the event is now even bigger and better starting on Friday night for those camping on site.
