Following its success in 2017, the Redbrik Chesterfield Half Marathon returns on Sunday 21st October 2018 and Ashgate Hospicecare will continue as the main charity partner!
The Half Marathon is taking place from 9:30am, starting and finishing at Queen’s Park, Chesterfield, S40 2ND.
Runners last year generated almost £20,000 for Ashgate Hospicecare, so we are delighted to be the main charity partner for the event this year. The money you raised last year helped families across North Derbyshire access hospice care when they needed it. Families like Julie’s – watch their story here.
