Five good reasons for choosing our
Venue - As an
international destination city Chester has much to offer visitors
including the Roman walls and amphitheatre, shopping on its unique
split-level Rows dating from the Middle Ages, the famous Eastgate
Clock and museums. On the outskirts of the City are the massive
Cheshire Oaks Designer Outlet, Chester Zoo and the Blue Planet
Route - The race
starts at the city centre Chester Racecourse. The fast (and largely
flat) route will be run on entirely on closed roads. Heading
north-west out of the City on wide roads runners will rapidly
settle into the race, with plenty of support. In the second half of
the race runners return to Chester, heading back into the City for
a memorable finish outside the Town Hall and Cathedral.
A Race That Goes That Extra
Mile - Chris'
legendary obsession with the contents of the goody bags is just one
aspect of the energy that the entire organisation puts into getting
things spot on. No detail is too small and we strive to meet
the needs of every single runner, ensuring they have a race to
remember - a cunningly combined big race feel with a friendly
supportive atmosphere. Our passion is to deliver mass participation
world class races. With this in mind we are growing the Chester
Half Marathon on a gradual basis to ensure that the quality of the
race is not compromised in any way.
Drinks stations, with bottled water, will be every 3 miles.
There will be chip timing with splits at 10k, halfway, 10 miles and
20k. All finishers will receive a technical T-shirt, bespoke medal
and a goody bag!
Besides ramping up the production values when they took over
organising the race in 2011, Andy & Chris were keen to grow the
event so more people could take part. The target for 2013 was
6,000 and the event sold out, a firm indication that they are
ticking the right boxes for runners.
An Historic Race - the
Chester Half Marathon has been run since 1982 and over the years
has become one of the classic races in the region. The route
has changed over the years evolving into current format. The
finishing straight through the iconic Northgate and down towards
the Town Hall is second to none! more
Fabulous Facilities -
During the whole of the event's long history it has always been
associated with the impressive Chester Racecourse and it is easy to
see why. In recent years this venue has seen some spectacular
upgrading of its facilities and we have been quick to take
advantage of them in order to enhance your experience.
Relocating the Finish to the Town Hall and Cathedral area in
2012 was an inspired move which allowed us to further exploit what
Chester has to offer.
