Chesterfield Half Marathon Route

To be announced in Autumn 2020

2019 route:

The race began in the Park with a new first mile route, before runners headed through the town centre, cheered on by the crowds in the market square and looping around the town’s famous Crooked Spire and southwards onto the A617.

Runners had the unique opportunity of not only running along the dual carriageway, but on right-hand side of the road, before heading towards Hasland Road and coming back towards the town centre, passing the halfway point in Hasland.

The runners had another chance to lap up the atmosphere of the busy crowds as they headed back towards the town centre, past headline sponsors Redbrik Estate Agents, the town hall and out onto Chatsworth Road. They then headed towards event charity partner Ashgate Hospicecare, before looping back onto Chatsworth Road and crossing the finish line in Queens Park.

The race is for those aged 17 and over.
