20th Anniversary Cransley Hospice Road Races

  • 19th September 2021



The Cransley Hospice Road Race we will be celebrating the 20th Anniversary on Sunday 19th September 2021! Not only is this a fantastic milestone to have achieved, but we are hoping as many runners as possible will join us to run together, for this is the last ever event. 

Kindly sponsored by Western Power Distribution, this year’s event will offer challenging 10k and ½ marathon distances, along with a 2.3k Junior Run for those aged 8 – 14.

All adult routes are professionally chip-timed, giving you the opportunity to smash your PB and there’ll be a fantastic medal and refreshing treats on the finish line for every runner!

We know this very special race is one that many local runners hold close to their hearts, so we hope that you will join us to pound the streets of Cranford one last time and help support your local hospice.

Sounds great, how can I get involved?

Advanced entry is priced as follows:

½ Marathon:  £22 (£20 for affiliated athletes)

10k:  £20 (£18 for affiliated athletes)

2.3k Junior Run, open to children aged 8 – 14:  £5 (including a goody bag)

On the day entries will NOT be available this year to ensure our event is Covid-secure. Please do not attend without a valid ticket. 


We understand it can be hard to ask your friends and family to sponsor you when times are tough, but we really need the support of all of our runners to raise as much money as possible to fund end of life care for those with a terminal diagnosis in our community.

We’ve made it REALLY EASY to get involved by simply downloading our ROAD RACES SWEEPSTAKE!

Simply download our print-at-home sweepstake below, then ask TEN friends and family members to guess your time in the upcoming event, and each donate just £5. After you have run, the person with the closest guess to your finish time WINS the jackpot of £25, with the remaining £25 donation coming to support the essential work of Cransley Hospice Trust. It couldn’t be easier! So have a little fun and support your local hospice by downloading today!
