merrell Cannock Chase Trail Marathon

Saturday 18th May


Cannock Chase Forest,

WS15 2UA


half, full & relay available

We've organised the Cannock Chase Half Trail Marathon for 5 years. More recently we've been asked if we could offer an even longer distance option. So for 2024 the Half Trail Marathon will continue... but for those that want the ultimate Cannock Chase challenge, we introduce to you the Cannock Chase Trail Marathon.


With the help of our brand new headline sponsor, Merrell we are now able to offer 13.1 or 26.2 miles of undulating trails around the area of outstanding natural beauty of Cannock Chase. In our view a true trail runners paradise!

The course is 100% fully off road, we take you along single track trails, fire roads many of which are off the normal beaten track. A true adventure. For the Full Marathon you will complete 2 laps of the course making it one of the hardest marathons events in the UK.


We're also offering the chance to compete with a teammate in the Marathon Relay option. As a team 2 (any gender) 1 runner will complete the first half marathon lap and then hand over to their teammate to complete the 2nd lap.

Unlike many of the events on Cannock Chase, we work really hard to design a course that really excites us. You can come along and run along the main fire roads anyway of the week. We want to take off the beaten track. This is course that will challenge all but at the same time isn’t too difficult making it suitable for new and long time runners alike.


This is an event for all, yet like all of our other events our main aim is bringing like-minded people together to enjoy a sport we all love… Running. If you want to take it serious then great but if like many just making it round is your challenge then fantastic! We will support you every step of the way


For 2024 the entries will be limited to 500 so please enter early to avoid disappointment.
