Roding Valley Half Marathon

Promoted by Woodford Green AC with Essex Ladies

Sunday 3rd March 2019, starting at 9am

Ashton Playing Fields, Chigwell Road, Woodford Green IG8 8AA

Based in over 5 acres of woodland, with a vast adventure playground and nature reserve, ELHAP gives disabled children the chance to "just be kids”. Children can fly through the air on the zip wire, climb through underground tunnels, build dens in the woods, and experience the joys of cooking over an open fire. ELHAP has been hit hard by the financial down-turn and urgently needs your support.
