The Chelmsford Marathon will return for its seventh year in October in aid of Havens Hospices and will be taking place on Sunday 17 October 2021. The event raises vital funds for Havens Hospices, an Essex wide charity that provides palliative nursing and supportive care to children and adults living with complex or incurable conditions.  

The popular Essex running event has an exciting new addition this year of a half marathon option, for those wanting to run a shorter route. Both the 26.2 mile and 13 mile routes will take runners from the start line at Shire Hall at the top of Chelmsford High Street, out through the surrounding countryside and pretty villages of Essex and then across the finish line in Central Park.   

Every mile will truly make a difference for every child, young person, adult and family that Havens Hospices care for across Essex.

Online registration is now open for the Chelmsford Marathon and the Chelmsford Marathon Half route.
