Chelmsford’s Family Fun Run & Marathon

On Sunday 20 October, The J’s Hospice is holding its first Chelmsford 3K Fun Run. This family-friendly event is suitable for all ages and abilities – you can walk, jog or run the 3K course and prams and well-behaved dogs on leads are welcome.

The route starts and finishes in Central Park, taking in some of the city’s beautiful parks, and everyone who takes part will be given a medal when they cross the finish line.

The 3K Family Fun Run is raising money for The J’s Hospice which is part of Havens Hospices. The J’s supports young adults with life-limiting conditions and their families across Essex, providing specialist care in the comfort of their own homes and in the community.

It only costs £5 per person to take part and children under five can join in for free. It’s a great, fun way to get the whole family exercising together while raising money for a local hospice charity. To find out more and sign-up online, go to:

If you’re looking for a greater sporting challenge, The J’s Hospice Chelmsford Marathon is also on Sunday 20 October. The 26.2 mile course is on road and tarmac paths that take you through the city and out into the nearby countryside before returning to Central Park to finish. Online registration is open now at:

The J’s Hospice is looking for volunteers to help make both events a big success. If you can help with the pre-event organisation or you can volunteer on 20 October (e.g. at a water station, as a marshal or helping with baggage, t-shirts and at the finish funnel) please contact Lucy: [email protected] / 01245 475474

Thank you to the Chelmsford office of Aon, the professional services firm, which is kindly sponsoring both events.
