A big thank you jdm Estate Agents for Sponsoring the race. To Bromley Council for letting us use Scadbury Park and to The Bull Head Hotel and for Walnuts Cafe letting us use their toilets.
It finally happened – We are now on Instagram. Please follow us @bridgeeventsdartford.
The 2021 Chislehurst Chase will take place on the 19th September
As things stand as of now the 2021 race will now be run under covid19 rules. This means a runner will start every 10 seconds. The race is limited to 100 runners. This is the only way the race can take place.
Race update 25/08/2020
I have had another meeting with Bromley Council yesterday about this year’s race.
Unfortunately it not good news. They feel that its sill to unsafe to run the race though Scadbury park. The park is used by a lot off dog walkers and parts of the run course are very narrow.
Also the Start and finish area that we use is not very big so overcrowding would be a problem.
We then have the problem of toilets. Before we have used the Bull Hotel and the Walnuts cafe.
So sadly we have had to cancel this year’s race.
On the other hand, we have been given the OK from Dartford council to still run the Dartford Bridge 10k on the 27th September.
Everyone of course can have a full refund or we can transfer you over to the Bridge 10k.
If you can e-mail me on email@example.com and let me know what you would like to do.
If we don’t hear back from you within the next 2 weeks we will give you a full refund.
I am sorry that we have had to cancel but it’s out of our control.
Stay safe and take care.

England Athletics has the following announcement with regard to track and field events.
Registration will open at 8am and will be on the Triangle by the traffic lights.
Royal Parade, Chislehurst BR7 6NR
All race numbers and timing chips will be picked up on race day.
The race start is 300m away just past the Bull Hotel
The 10k race will start at 10am.
The fun run will start at 11.40am
I will be adding the start list to the web site Wednesday evening.
Bag storage will be by the finish area.
Unfortunately, we will not be able to start the race on the road. We could not get police cover to stop the traffic. The race will start just inside the wood about 300m from registration.
We are very lucky the Walnuts Cafe and Bull Hotel are allowing us to use their Toilets. Can enter from the side of the Hotel not the front door. Please can you keep them both tidy.
Pop in and support them both after for a recovery Coffee or Pint but only 1 if you are driving. They also both serve a very high stranded of food.
If you are a 32 to 35-minute runner, then you should be near the front at the start. If you are a bit slower try and put yourself in the right place. It’s a chipped run so your time will start when you cross the mat.
Please keep to the side when running as there will other people using the park.
Please take care as you will be running on uneven ground. There will be gravel and tree roots to contend with so be careful.
I will send out a final update Friday evening for late entries.
We think you will be impressed with the medals this year. Bigger and much better than last year. Even the Trophies are bigger this year.
To confirm we will be giving out trophies for the following age groups. If you think you have won a Trophy please wait for the Prize giving. This will be held as quick as we can.
