Race Route

Our innovative metric marathon route takes in the historic city centre sights and the scenic villages of Cheshire.

Runners leave the racecourse and head into the City centre passing the Town Hall, Cathedral, split level Middle Ages "Rows", Eastgate Clock and Amphitheatre before leaving Chester along Boughton.

Turning down Sandy Lane the route passes alongside the River Dee and through Huntington onto rural country lanes. After running through Aldford then you reach the turnround point, and join the marathon runners on the return to Chester - see elevation.

On re-entering the City, runners follow the River Dee along the Groves and Castle Drive before a triumphant finish at the racecourse!

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