Welcome to Active Leisure Events

The home of the multi-award winning and three time winner of the UK's Best Marathon Up to 5,000 Runners (2018, 2019, 2020), the MBNA Chester Marathon. One of the UK's longest running and award winning half marathons, the Essar Chester Half Marathon, and the award winning, sell-out, best City Centre 10K in the North West, the ALDI Chester 10K.

Our 2022 Events & The Chester Triple

Our future race dates are:

MBNA Chester 10K - 13th March 2022
Essar Chester Half Marathon  - 15th May 2022
MBNA Chester Marathon & Metric Marathon - 2nd October 2022

The Chester Triple is back for 2022 and the extra medal will be the perfect reward for running and completing three events with us in 2022.

Run and complete the MBNA Chester 10K (6.2 miles), the Essar Chester Half Marathon (13.1 miles) and either the MBNA Chester Marathon (26.2 miles) or Metric Marathon (26.2 km) in 2022 and you'll receive one of our fantastic Chester Triple Medals.
