Spectators

We highly encourage spectators and family to come along and watch you take part in The Chelmsford Marathon.

Due to the nature of the road race, we request that spectators DO NOT follow the runners onto the course in vehicles, as this will cause additional traffic and congestion on the roads.

The best place to watch the race is:

  • Shire Hall, for the start of the race.
  • Central Park, you will see runners pass by at mile point 3 and the finish.
  • Writtle – On foot/vehicle access. Lordship Road will be closed, therefore vehicle access can be gained into Writtle Tea rooms, but no further into the Writtle College section. Spectators can then walk to the course from their vehicles.
