MBNA Chester Marathon 9am 4th October 2015

Chester - The multi award winning destination marathon

2015 will be the 6th MBNA Chester Marathon and we have developed an enviable reputation with runners of all levels and abilities. We are runners ourselves and it is our passion to deliver a world class mass participation race. With this in mind we are growing the race in a carefully controlled manner to ensure that quality is not compromised in any way.

Entry fees:

                                 £45 from 1 January 2015 until 31 July 2015

The fast and predominantly flat route is on closed roads covering 19 miles in England and 7 miles in Wales. You will run past all Chester's iconic landmarks (Roman Walls, Cathedral, Medieval Rows,  Eastgate Clock, Amphitheatre) before heading out to the stunning Cheshire and North Wales countryside and villages; returning alongside the River Dee for a unforgettable finish at the Racecourse. The support in the villages and communities along the course is one of the many highlights of the race.

Drinks stations will be at every 2.5 to 3 miles, with bottled water at all 9 stations. Sports drink will also be available at drinks stations 2, 4, 6 and 8. We will have chip timing with intermediate splits at 10k, 20k, halfway, 30k and 40k, with social media athlete tracking so friends and family can follow your progress.

All finishers will receive a quality goody bag, as well as a long sleeved technical T-shirt and a bespoke medal.
