Chester Half Marathon

The Race Information booklet is now online.

2016 Race now open - click on the Enter Now box above to join us on 15th May 2016.   The race limit is 7000 and the race fills earlier each year.

In the 2015 Chester Half Marathon records were broken with our biggest ever field of runners, fastest winner in the history of the race and one of the fastest UK Half Marathons in 2015,  with Vincent Boit crossing the line in 1:02:21.

After 34 years the Chester Half is one of the UK’s longest established and highly regarded half marathons, starting and finishing in the historic Roman/Medieval international destination city of Chester.  Enter early as the race sells out every year.

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 35th Chester Half Marathon on 15th May 2016 and hope that you choose to run with us.

Race day will also include the 1 mile Fun Run.

Please read on through the web site for more information and to enter the race.  If you have any questions that are not covered by the web site or our FAQ’s please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Join us on Facebook and Twitter and share the build up to the race.

Good times!
