Take on the challenge of The J’s Chelmsford Marathon. A 26.2 mile single lap course on road and tarmac paths finishing in Central Park. The marathon follows a scenic rural route which heads out through the city and then undulates through the nearby countryside and pretty villages of north Essex. Perfect for both first time or experienced marathon runners.

The J’s Hospice Chelmsford Marathon aims to raise funds for young adult hospice care. The communities of Chelmsford and the surrounding villages come out in their thousands to cheer and support the runners, raising money for The J’s Hospice.

The Marathon is organised by The J’s Hospice and all race proceeds go to The J’s Hospice and runners are urged to raise sponsorship. The race is looking to attract runners of all abilities, from experienced athletes to those new to marathon running.
