Races summary
Here's what races are available for Chichester Harbour - Chidham Trail Run
Route information
New for 2023 the Chidham Trail Run has expanded to include a new 1/2 Marathon route.
This amazing trail route around Chidham Peninsular and surrounding harbour-side paths will take in the most spectacular views of Chichester Harbour (Area of outstanding natural beauty); including long reaching views over Bosham Hoe, Itchenor, East Head and the surrounding South Downs.
The quiet scenic routes will overload your senses with constant coastal vistas and wildlife, making it one of the South’s best kept secret trail runs. This well crafted off-road route will guide you around the perimeter of the Chidham Peninsular and an additional loop around the top of the harbour.
The route is run at low tide as it includes a small section of the foreshore giving a unique running experience. The flat nature of the course makes for a perfect early-season run. With two route distances (21.3km/15km) to choose from, there is a distance to cater for all abilities.
