Chelmsford Marathon runners on route

The Event

Will you take on the challenge of the Chelmsford Marathon?

Join us for a 26.2 mile single lap course on road and tarmac paths, starting at The Shire Hall in the High Street and finishing in Central Park. This is a scenic rural route which heads out through the city and then undulates through the nearby countryside and pretty villages of north Essex. 

This event helps to raise vital funds for The J’s Hospice, which is part of Havens Hospices. The J’s provides palliative nursing and supportive care to young adults living with complex or incurable conditions across Essex, in the comfort of their own home and through support groups in the community.

It was really good! The course was nice – I liked the mix of city and country running and the marshals were really friendly and supportive. Bo Chan
