The route goes through the centre of Chippenham and then follows scenic country lanes visiting local villages and hamlets.

The Chippenham Half Marathon is run over a fast, accurately measured and predominantly flat course starting and finishing at our club base Chippenham Sports Club. This event is ideal for first timers or experienced long distance runners looking to achieve a personal best.

Finding your motivation

Our patients and their families face tough challenges every single day and staff at the RUH are always there to guide, support and care for them, day in and day out. The funds raised from your run will help us to invest in extra-special equipment and facilities that make a real difference to everyone at the hospital, that goes above and beyond what standard NHS funding can afford. In 2019, we’ll also be celebrating our 20th year of fundraising (over £20 million has been raised for the hospital over those years!), so if you’re thankful for the RUH and want us to help us continue our work with the experience of a lifetime… then why not run the Chippenham Half Marathon to support our patients.

You’ll not only get your very own Team RUH running vest, but also the complete support of our Events team and a fundraising pack with everything you’ll need to raise money (including Sponsorship Forms).
