D-Day looming for Chippenham half marathon

THERE is now less than 24 hours to enter the Chippenham half marathon. The race is scheduled for this Sunday, starting at 9.30am, and the entry deadline is 10am tomorrow – and NO entries will be taken on the day.

Yesterday it was confirmed that the event has already received 1,753 entries reflecting its popularity among local runners which helped it to come fourth in the 2014 Runners World Top 10 Half Marathons and winner of the Wiltshire AA Race of the Year Awards.

The Bristol & West pair of Oli Mott and Am Chalk both finished second in last year’s race.
