The Chillington Hall Half Marathon

The Chillington Hall Half Marathon is a race through the private estate of the Giffard Family. Remaining in their family for 29 generations they are now kindly opening up the beautiful grounds for its inaugural half marathon.

Take in the views and splendour of this wonderful estate as you run through its varied landscape. The course flows past the grand house, through the woodland and on to loop around the beautiful tranquil lake.

The route will be as close to the usual 13.1 miles half marathon distance as we can get it, but never under. It follows the many trails and paths through the beautiful and varied Chillington Estate. Terrain includes grass, fields, mud and gravel. You start near the grand house up and down the main driveway, before leading off to a double loop around the beautiful woodland and lake.

There is a short bit on tarmac near the start and finish area to maximise space for runners to spread out. No killer hills, but some definite uphills with uneven ground in places so trail shoes are recommended. Please stick to the signposted route which follows clear, well defined paths and trails. Marshals will be at various points around the course and another will follow the last runner to ensure everyone gets round safely.

All entrants are expected to be reasonably fit and able to run / jog most of the route without getting into difficulty. There will be 4 water stops along the route at approx 3.5, 6.5, 8.25 and 11 miles.
