Thanks to Printwaste Ltd in Cheltenham, our environmental credentials have been boosted.

Printwaste will be managing all the event day waste and donate landfill free bins on the 17th June. This means no waste from the challenge will be dumped in landfill.

This is in addition to our pledge to remove single use plastic cups. The Cheltenham Challenge is now plastic and landfill free!

We're doing our bit so we hope others follow.

To all our Half Marathon-ers!

We mentioned a while ago regarding the re-route for 2018 due to maintenance works outside of our control. Here is a short video which highlights some of the change. Although Aggs Hill is not a part of the route this year, we think you're going to enjoy the new stretch up Noverton Lane. 🙂

Just over a month to go!
