The Chichester Half Marathon 2016 is live!
Following another great race in 2015 with over 900 registered runners, The Children on the Edge Chichester Half Marathon is set to break the 1000 runners mark in 2016.
Registration is now open for individual and charity runners. However, in March 2016 we will be launching a CORPORATE TEAM RACE as well as a brand new RELAY RACE. To register your interest in either race please email Eloise and we will send you information about how to enter as a team.
The route, which again 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.
Sponsored by Store Property and Montezuma's Chocolates and delivered in partnership with Chichester District Council, the race has already become an iconic Chichester event which also raises vital funds for locally based charity, Children on the Edge.
