Why Chichester Half Marathon is not just a race

The dust has settled on the 2018 Chichester Half Marathon, but as runners reflect on some great times and finishes, they can also look back with pride.

That's because taking part in the race has helped the Chichester-based charity Children on the Edge, who organise the event in conjunction with Everyone Active, use it to rasie vital funds for their work around the world.
