Chelmsford Marathon

The J’s Hospice ‘Chelmsford Marathon’ returns for its third year in 2016 to raise funds for young adults hospice care. The annual event returns to the city on Sunday 23rd October.

This prestigious sporting event, a must for the running calendar, will be following the same route that was so popular with runners in 2015 – setting off from Shire Hall through the city centre and into the local countryside before returning to Chelmsford and finishing in Central Park

Last year, the communities of Chelmsford and surrounding villages came out in their thousands to cheer and support the 800 runners, raising an amazing £65,000 for The J’s Hospice.

The Marathon is organised by The J’s Hospice and managed on their behalf by Nice Work. The race is looking to attract runners of all abilities, from experienced athletes to those new to marathon running. The race attracts over 1,000 participants – so an early entry is advised.
