The Chelmsford Marathon 

The J’s Hospice ‘Chelmsford Marathon’ returns for its fourth year in 2017 to raise funds for young adult’s hospice care.

Last year, the communities of Chelmsford and surrounding villages came out in their thousands to cheer and support the 861 runners, raising an amazing £60,000 for The J’s Hospice charity.

Using a virtually flat route with some undulations this accurately measured single lap course starts outside Shire Hall in Chelmsford City Centre and takes runners along the high street and through to Chelmer village and then on to Writtle College and the villages of Roxwell and Willingale before finishing in Central Park.

The race is looking to attract runners of all abilities, from experienced athletes to those new to marathon running.

Registrations are now open for The Chelmsford Marathon and 5K 2017
