Chelmsford Marathon

Join us for a 26.2 mile single lap course on road and tarmac paths starting 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 event raises funds for The J's Hospice

What runners say about Chelmsford Marathon:

“I’ve run all five Chelmsford Marathons and would recommend this event to other runners. I will be back to run it again.”

“I really enjoyed it. It was scenic which was nice and undulating which kept it interesting and made it better than a flat course. It was really well-marshalled too so I didn’t have to think about the route and the on-the-day registration was easy to do. I would do it again and definitely recommend it to other runners. The J’s Hospice is a great charity to support as it fills a gap in care for young people.”
