The fast course starts near the iconic Northgate Arena and heads north-west out of the City along wide roads allowing runners to rapidly settle into race pace, then passing through the picturesque village of Mollington, before returning to the heart of Chester City centre and finishing outside the historic Victorian town hall and Medieval Cathedral. 


You can expect some fast times over this 10K course, hosted on fully closed roads with chip timing. Can you be the one to set the first course record and win the race?

Drinks & Toilets

Drinks stations with bottled water, will be positioned in the village of Mollington at the 5K mark.
Toilets will be located around the start pens, at the drink station and after the finish.
