Moonlight Colourthon 2010 – Summary

Home, Results

😎 Participants of the ‘Moonlight Colourthon’ walked the half marathon (13.1 miles) at night / 8pm on Saturday 3rd July, 2010 all the walkers were encouraged to dress as brightly as their imagination would allow them to! The weather was a scorcher.

This year’s event started at Chalkwell Park with live interviews on BBC Essex Radio

and a quick warm up with the Colorthon fitness guru. 


A few stretches later it was time for the off. There where over 1500 entrants and  first across the start line were Jo-Jo Cranfield, Mark Foster and Rachel Riley

they walked through Chalkwell park to Old Leigh Road along Kings Road up Chalkwell Avenue to Imperial Avenue then down Crowstone Road to Crosby Road back down Chalkwell Avenue towards

Chalkwell beach along Southend sea front towards the cafes under the Arches rising up past the Cliffs Pavilion which took in Westcliff’s picturesque cliff tops with its brisk sea breezes and band stand on to Southend Pier Hill. Then the route dropped down overlooking the famous Southend Pleasure Pier

and then traveled through the exclusive Chalkwell Hall Estate, and continued into Old Leigh with its quaint cottages and fisherman’s sheds

From there they walked back up a gentle gradient at Belton Way and returned along the beautiful cliffs at Marine Parade strolling through Leigh itself back into Chalkwell Park to the finishing gantry to collect their medals.

 You will be pleased to know Jo-Jo finished her half marathon walk in 3 hours and 28 minutes 😆
