The Chelmsford Marathon & Half - The Chelmsford Half

We are delighted to announce that the Chelmsford marathon returns for an 7th year in 2021 even bigger and better!

Sadly, the 2020 event was cancelled due to Coronavirus but this popular race returns in 2021, with the exciting addition of a new half marathon distance.

This has always been a major fundraising event for Havens Hospices and, because of the pandemic and cancelation of the 2020 race, the 2021 event will carry even more importance.Your entry will be helping to provide palliative nursing and supportive care to adults, young people and children living with complex or incurable conditions across Essex. This is one of the biggest events in the Essex race calendar and is expected to attract over 1,000 participants, an early entry is advised.

The Chelmsford Marathon is a 26.2 mile single lap course on road and tarmac paths starting in the city centre and finishing in Central Park. A scenic rural route which heads out through the city and then undulates through the nearby countryside and pretty villages of north Essex. The race has a stunning finish line, down an avenue of autumn trees in Central Park.

The race draws a large crowd, with many supporters and friendly marshals on the route to cheer you on. The race is rated highly among runners and comes highly recommended – It’s definitely one to add to your 2021 race diaries.

Bespoke medal
