Now in its eighth year, the Griffin Chapman Colchester Half Marathon has become established as one of the biggest and best races in the region. Organised by a group of volunteers from Colchester Colne Round Table, alongside some dedicated individuals from the Colchester community, the team that bring you the race work throughout the year to ensure you have a great race day experience.
We think our race is special. The Colchester Half Marathon was conceived nine years ago with a few simple objectives.
To date the race has raised hundreds of thousands of pounds for local charities. These have included MSUK, Headway, The Robin Cancer Trust Robin and the Tom Bowdridge Foundation. In 2017 we were able to present Essex and Herts Air Ambulance with a cheque for £60,000. For 2018 our charity partners will once again be Essex and Herts Air Ambulance and MSUK and we are aiming to break our fundraising record once again.
