Chislehurst Half Marathon - Sunday 20 May 2018


I'm writing to let you know that the third running of this local annual half marathon is due to take place in May.

Based in Chislehurst, this half marathon is a circuit which includes the trails and open heathland of glorious Scadbury Park, with 50% of the total distance being offroad.

Race HQ is at Glebe Football Club in Foxbury Avenue off Perry Street in Chislehurst which offers catering, a licensed bar, onsite parking, baggage storage and proper loos, all in a safe environment. Apart from the usual podium trophies, there will be gold medals for the first 5 men and first 5 women to finish, silver for the next 20 men and 20 women finishers, and bronze for all other finishers.

600 entered the race in 2017 and we have adjusted the limit this time to 700 to meet the expected additional demand this year. The advance entry fee remains at £23 for affiliated runners, but there is a discount to £20 for all online entries received before the end of January, which can be accessed via the race website page at

The beneficiary of all of the race proceeds is South East London's childrens' charity the Maypole Project which supports families with children who have complex illnesses, for which £11,000 was raised from the event in its first two years.

I would be grateful therefore if you could pass word on to your members that entries are open in order that they may benefit from the earlybird discount and help to provide a contribution to the Maypole's fund raising efforts.

The race website is at  and there is a Facebook page for keeping up to date as race day approaches.

With best wishes

Richard Dunstan

Race Director
