The Roding Valley Half Marathon will take place next month.
Entries have been flooding in for the popular event which also accepts business teams.
David Hollingworth, the race director said that it is an event to look forward to.
He said: "We realise that there will always be clashes but hope many of our regulars will return once again to our race, which last year received its highest ever approval rating at the Runnersworld website.
"Good luck with your training and I look forward to welcoming you to our race."
Loughton accountants Haslers have supported the 21.1km event for a number of races in its 25 year history.
For the first time last year, the firm presented the Martin Anderson Trophy to the winning business team and will be doing so again in 2014.
Business teams who want to enter the race should consist of at least three members with the winning team decided by the lowest aggregate time.
This year’s Roding Valley Half Marathon takes place at 9am on Sunday, 9 March 2014 at Ashton Playing Fields, Woodford Green.
The entry fee for the race is £17 for affiliated members and £19 for unaffiliated runners.
