Chichester Half Marathon
Run by Chichester based charity Children on the Edge, in partnership with Everyone Active, this race has already become an iconic Chichester event, and is now in its eighth year. The Chichester Half Marathon Event has three fantastic races on offer: Half Marathon, Ten Miler, Half Marathon Relay. All races include a mixture of road, cross country and cycle path terrain.
The routes take in the historic sites of Chichester, including the Cathedral and the Roman city walls, before heading up to the pinnacle of the South Downs - the Trundle. Runners then wind their way back down to Chichester via the Centurion Way. The event raises vital funds to support Children on the Edge projects with vulnerable children around the world.
With three Half Marathon runners, you can also enter the Corporate Team Challenge.
You will get a Race Number and Timing Chip, along with training notes, running tips and advice from our running expert, Graham Jessop.
All finishers will receive a medal and goody bag. We're biased, but we think our goody bags are pretty great - previous bags have include tasty chocolate and products from our friends and sponsors at Montezumas Chocolates and The Body Shop.
