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.

What you need to know about Running Events

Running is the world’s most accessible sport. Park runs, colour runs, 5k, 10k, half marathons, marathons and ultras — all you need is a pair of trainers and off you go. Running events are hugely popular on Let’s Do This and it’s a sociable sport, so get some friends involved and achieve something extraordinary.

If you’re starting small, the 5k and 10k events are great fun and definitely worth doing even if you’re training for a bigger challenge further down the line. Getting used to the atmosphere of an event is important. You’re so much more likely to hit a better time if there’s a crowd cheering you on, people in fancy dress and a big celebration at the finish line.

Find local Running races

Today, with international organisations, local clubs and national events to choose from, there are thousands of races to discover, and we want to help you find them quickly and easily. Below you’ll find selections by running type, running location and some exceptional events to take part in.
