Registration is now open for Chelmsford Marathon which takes place this year on Sunday 20 October. This popular event has a real sense of community and offers a more personal experience than some of the larger marathons.
There are always fantastic marshals, awesome supporters and the runners are out of this world, looking after each other all the way, sharing advice and stories.
Runners get the best of both worlds by running in the city and the scenic North Essex countryside. The single lap course on road and tarmac paths is nice and undulating which maintains interest throughout and definitely helps with the mental challenge on the day.
The atmosphere is brilliant too with local people cheering from outside their homes and that complements the great team spirit amongst the runners.
Chelmsford Marathon is organised by Havens Hospices to raise money for The J’s Hospice service which cares for young adults aged 16-40 with life-limiting conditions and their families across Essex.
The J’s provides tailored nursing and emotional care, advice and social activities in the comfort of their home or in the community, helping them to live life to the full, however short.
