The Cannock Chase Half Marathon & 10k

Location: Cannock Chase, Penkridge Bank Road, Rugeley, WS15 2UA
Date: Sunday 23rd October 2022
Time: 10:00

After a sellout debut in 2019 when over 750 runners completed the challenging Half Marathon race using the undulating forest paths and trails in and around Cannock Chase Forest the race returns in 2022.
The event is open to runners of all abilities, from novices to experienced athletes and is perfect for spring marathon training.

And if half marathon doesn't quite suit, why not try the 10k option?

There will be medals and finish line goodies on offer to all finishers.

There are prizes on offer to leading men and ladies plus a variety of age category prizes and team prizes for both male and female (3 to score).

  • Baggage Drop Off
The Course
The course uses a challenging two lap route around the trails and paths within Cannock Chase. Starting and finishing close to Penkridge Road Car Park, the route should be quiet with no vehicle traffic, although there will be other forest users and bicycles crossing the routes, so runners should be alert to other users.

Route maps will be available shortly.

First Aid
Ambtrans Medical Services will be in attendance on the day and the course will be marshalled to provide assistance. There will also be a sweep runner following the race to ensure that nobody is left behind and that all runners are accounted for. 
Your individual time and position will be recorded by our chip timing team. We will endeavour to display results as they come into the race centre, but please allow time for manual processing. Results will be uploaded to www.nice-work.org.uk as soon as possible after the race. All entrants that have supplied a valid and legible email address will receive a copy of the results as soon as possible after the race.
