As runners ourselves we are passionate about delivering what for us would be the perfect race; a premier quality, competitively priced race which caters for the needs of runners of all abilities and speeds, combined with friendliness and personal touches which are unique to us.

The fast and largely flat city and rural race route will be run entirely on closed roads. 

With our web site packed with all the information you need about the race, our  free monthly paced training runs, seminars and team of race day pace runners, we are here for you to help you achieve your goals and enjoy the race day experience.

We are looking forward to the 36th Chester Half Marathon on 21st May 2017 and hope that you choose to run with us.

Race day will also include the 1 mile Fun Run.
