Whether you’re a beginner or pro runner the good news is there’s plenty of time to train for The Chichester Half Marathon 2014 and registration is open!
This year, we’ve opened registration bright and early in January for all those folks full of New Year resolve, looking for a great fitness challenge to work towards in October.
The 'Chi Half' is a challenging and beautiful ‘multi terrain’ half marathon organised by Children on the Edge, in conjunction with Chichester District Council and sponsored by Montezuma’s Chocolates and Store Property.
The race is now in it’s 3rd year after doubling its entries at the last October 2013 event and raising nearly £31,000 for our work with forgotten children living in in some of the toughest situations across the globe.
The route includes a mixture of road, cross country and cycle path terrain; taking in both the historic sites of Chichester and some spectacular views from the pinnacle of the South Downs.
Registration opened yesterday (13th Jan) and with this early start even non runners could start their training now in order to complete the race in October. Training support will be offered for all levels of participants from new runners through to past competitors hoping to achieve a personal best.
If running really isn’t for you but you’d like to be involved in a great event which brings the community together, then think about volunteering. Roles include marshalling at different points along the race route; manning water tables and handing out medals and goodie bags at the finish. Just contact Amy Chamberlain by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 01243 534797.
The event will take place on Sunday 12th of October. You are advised to sign up early as places go quickly, and discounts apply until the 12th April 2014. ‘Early bird’ prices are £21 for EA affiliated club members and £23 for unattached and other runners.
Sign up for the race and get sponsored for Children on the Edge!
