The J's Hospice Chelmsford 5k

The J's Hospice is holding its successful Chelmsford 5K licensed run along the Chelmsford Marathon route on the same day.  Starting and finishing in Chelmsford, the route is road running and tarmac paths. 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 Race Village will also have trade stands and family-friendly entertainment available.

A 5km race is also available.

The Course
Using a virtually flat route this accurately measured single lap course starts and finishes Central Park and follows the paths and tracks within Central Park.

First Aid
St John Ambulance or an alternative medical provider will be in attendance on the day and the course will be marshalled to provide assistance. There will also be a sweep marshal 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 your electronic chip. We will endeavour to display results as they come into the race centre. 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.
