Welcome to the Cheltenham Challenge, Gloucestershire’s original multi-terrain, multi-distance event offering 5K, 10K and Half Marathon distances. The 5K and 10K are open to all ages, runners and walkers. The Half Marathon is for adults 17+ only and must be completed within 4 hours. All races are single laps through the glorious Gloucestershire countryside, with the Half Marathon presenting a tough climb to the top of Cleeve Hill before descending through the notorious Nutters Wood.

Cheltenham Challenge is organised by Gloucestershire-based charity Caring for Communities and People (CCP). There is no obligation to raise sponsorship in order to participate, however, any fundraising you can do for CCP will help us to tackle the causes and effects of homelessness and family breakdown. Please visit our main CCP website for more information on the services we deliver in Gloucestershire, Worcestershire, Herefordshire, Wiltshire, South Gloucestershire and Dorset.
Cheltenham Challenge is committed to reducing our impact on the environment by reducing wastage and limiting the use of single-use disposable plastic containers. We ask that participants BRING AND RUN WITH their own REFILLABLE DRINKS BOTTLE. Water stations will be equipped with pumps for refilling.
We gratefully acknowledge the support given by our sponsors
