The Chichester Half Marathon
Returning in 2012 after a 25 year break, the Chichester Half Marathon has a challenging, yet beautiful, route which includes a mixture of road, cross country and cycle path terrain. It starts at Chichester College and takes in the historic sites of Chichester, including the Cathedral, Market Cross, and Roman Walls. It then leads up to the pinnacle of the South Downs before winding its way back down Centurion Way.
The Children on the Edge Chichester Half Marathon is organised by Children on the Edge in conjunction with Chichester District Council. The 2014 event took place on Sunday 12 October with more than 700 runners enjoying ideal race conditions. James Baker crossed the finish line first in a time of 1hr 13min 05sec. Kari Mack was the first female runner home in a time of 1hr 30min 58sec. Chichester Runners were the top men's team and Wiggle Cycles won the works trophy.
The 2015 race will be taking place on Sunday 11th October 2015. Watch this space for the details!

Thank you. Awesome race. It has a special place in my heart it marks the start of my race running a year ago today.Everyone is so friendly and lovely.The course is challenging and good fun.
Everyone in the Wiggle team very much enjoyed the race and we’re delighted to have won. A great number of the Wiggle staff are keen runners and frequent race participants, so it was a great moment to have six of us atop the Trundle at more or less the same time. Our thanks to the organisers and sponsors. Of course, next year we’ll have to come back and defend our title!

The Chi Half is a great event – well organised, friendly and a varied and challenging route. I shall be back again next year.
Brilliant, brilliant event and very well organised from beginning to end – even if the end for me was 2 hrs 10 in the making! My first half marathon and thoroughly enjoyed every moment, even the Trundle – or Grumble in some cases! Will be back next year for sure
