Huge crowds lined the streets of Great Baddow for the Great Baddow Charity Races which took place in the village on Sunday May 22, 2011. The day was warm and sunny with a strong breeze making for just about perfect running conditions. The event is now in its 27th year and has been organised for the past 16 years by The Rotary Club of Chelmsford Mildmay.

Starting and finishing in the Recreation Ground, there is a 10 mile race for the serious runners and a 2 mile fun run for others to join in.

The 10 mile race is run under the regulations of UK Athletics/BARR. Over the years the event has grown in stature and become a well respected race in the road running calendar.

This years winner was Paul Molyneux of the Springfield Striders winning in a time of 53 minutes 42 seconds.
