MBNA Chester Marathon
The multi-award winning and UK’s only international marathon from the historic Roman/Medieval international destination City of Chester. We are proud to be a qualifying event for the 2017 England Age Group Marathon.
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 spectacular city and rural race route combined with enthusiastic support and regular drinks/nutrition stations helped a record 70% of our runners achieve personal best times.
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.
Thanks to the dedication and enthusiastic support of our team and 700 volunteers, combined with feedback from runners and the backing of many we are proud that Runner’s World runners have previously voted us the UK’s best marathon and best road marathon.
We are looking forward to the seventh MBNA Chester Marathon on 2nd October 2016 and hope that you choose to run with us.
