A Message from the Organisers

The Organisers of the Chippenham Half Marathon say goodbye.

The current organising committee for the Chippenham Half Marathon (CHM), comprising Ian Wiggins, Kevin Napier and Chris Constable (L to R) are stepping down from this role and will no longer be planning and implementing the race. We have been involved with the organisation and execution of the race since it was resurrected back in 2008 and feel that it is now time to take a rest and have therefore passed the organisation of the race to Chippenham Harriers who have agreed to continue to take the race forward in its current charity and fund raising format.

The outgoing CHM committee would like to express their gratitude to all those who have provided so much assistance in the past. In particular Paul Dodd, Ann Slator, John Duckenfield, Andy Thatcher, Liz Thatcher and Paul Edwards who were instrumental in helping to get the race off the ground in 2008 and providing support over the years.

We also would like to give a huge "thank you" to the Wiltshire Council authorities notably Kevin Oliver, Wiltshire Events on the Highway coordinator and John Cole at Wiltshire Highways & Transport whose guidance and hard work behind the scenes have enabled the successful running of the race.

Thank you also to all the sponsors that have supported us since 2008. In particular John Williams Heating, CD Fencing for the traffic management services and highway signage which they provided free of charge, Par Foods from Calne for the sourcing and storage of the race supplies and finally David and Gill Powell who have been great friends to the Chippenham Half Marathon and donated the prize money for the winners of the men's and women's races. A mention should also go to the multitude of other local businesses such as Carol Plumridge Osteopathy, Travis Perkins and Norman E Web for the support they have provided over the years.

A special thanks to Chippenham Sports & Social Club and Chippenham Cricket Club for allowing us the use of their grounds without which the race could not be hosted, and to Chippenham Harriers for supplying race day marshals and volunteers.

All of the above contributors have enabled the race to be able to donate over £80,000 to charities and local good causes and to provide a platform for the runners to raise many tens of thousands of pounds more through sponsorship to support charities and good cause that are close to their hearts.

And finally a big "thank you" to all those people who came to run with us over the years. We couldn't have done it without you!!

We would like to wish Chippenham Harriers all the best for the future and hope that under their control the Chippenham Half Marathon will continue to be one of the premiere events in the running calendar and will raise many more thousands of pounds for local charities and good causes.
