What Cheg said. Plenty of parking but limited access roads. The start has been delayed at least once due to traffic problems. Get there early and there's plenty of space to park. Not sure how long a walk it is from the station but if train is an option it's likely to be less stressful.

I remember the Race Director being quite obsessed before the race telling everyone to throw their arms open and smile inanely as they finish (for photo purposes of course). He was shouting the same thing at the finish line too!

Shoeburyness station is probably less than five minutes walk from the start.
