Due to some works taking place alongside St Marys School in Prestbury, which may not be finished in time for the Cheltenham Challenge in June, we have an update to part of the route for the half marathon.

Our organisers have been out to identify a new alternative - which won't be a huge change - but the half marathon may miss out Aggs Hill. To those who know Aggs Hill this may come as good news because it's very steep!

Watch the video below to see the first possible solution where the team have walked up to the Cotswold Way on Cleeve Hill and listen to Chris' commentary.

Water Cooler World have been big supporters of the Cheltenham Challenge for years. During this time they have provided hundreds and thousands of litres of valuable water needed to keep runners hydrated... especially on the hot events!

Anyone remember the 2017 event? Well, thanks to Water Cooler World we were able to provide extra water to runners at the last minute as temperatures went above 30 degrees. Thank you to Water Cooler World for the ongoing support and on behalf of all the runners - thank you for the water!

There are limited numbers for the 5k, 10k and half marathon - so get in there early to confirm your place!

In 2018 we are aiming to reduce plastic waste, so encourage all runners to bring refillable water bottles so we don't need to add to the ongoing battle with excessive plastic pollution. We'll have some recyclable cups for water but the best way to keep yourself hydrated will be to bring your own bottle. Lets work together to help our environment.
