Race Route

The Chester Half Marathon offers a fast course and a spectacular city centre finish. You now run past some of Chester's historic landmarks at the very start of the race too.

The updated route still starts at Chester Racecourse, before heading up Watergate Street, through the Walls and now enjoying the historic Chester city centre. Then you leave the city through the Garden Quarter before heading out into the countryside through the village of Mollington.

At halfway the runners will start their return to Chester, via Woodbank and Saughall. The finish in the City Centre outside the Town Hall and Cathedral provides an inspiring setting with cheering crowds of welcoming spectators.

Please note: Lodge Lane is a private road which we have had to seek permission to use for race day only. Please don't train along this part of the route.

First Aid at the start, along the course and at the finish will be provided by St John Ambulance.
