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, the MBNA Chester Marathon. One of the UK's longest running and award winning half marathons, the Essar Chester Half Marathon, and the multi award winning, sell-out, best City Centre 10K in the North West, the MBNA Chester 10K.

Our Events & The Chester Triple

Our future race dates are:

MBNA Chester Marathon & Metric Marathon - 8th October 2023

MBNA Chester 10K - 10th March 2024
Essar Chester Half Marathon  - 19th May 2024

The Chester Triple is back for 2023 and the extra medal will be the perfect reward for running and completing three events with us in 2023. So if you've already run the MBNA Chester 10K 2023 and the Essar Chester Half Marathon 2023, now is the time to enter the 2023 MBNA Chester Marathon (26.2 miles) or the 2023 MBNA Chester Metric Marathon (26.2 km).

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 2023 and you'll receive one of our fantastic Chester Triple Medals.

Please click on the tabs or links to take you through to our races. All our races are organised under UKA rules, and measured by the Association of UK Course Measurers and our licences and certificates can be seen here.
