About the race
The 'Chi Half' is a challenging yet beautiful half marathon, revived in 2012 after a 25 year absence. The event raises vital funds for the work of Children on the Edge and is now in its third year.
The route, which includes a mixture of road, cross country and cycle path terrain, starts at Chichester College and takes in the historic sites of Chichester, including the Cathedral and the walls. It then leads up to the pinnacle of the South Downs before wending its way back down Centurion Way.
