Fun Run entries are now open, click below to enter

The 2023 Essar Chester Half Marathon Fun Run is open to anyone wanting to take part, however, it is aimed primarily at children.

>> ENTER THE FUN RUN BY CLICKING HERE <<

Accompanying parents, guardians and grandparents are welcome - but please note you need to enter too.

We're looking forward to welcoming our Fun Runners and supporting them on their run around Chester Racecourse. The Fun Run (approximately 1 mile) will be conducted wholly within Chester Racecourse, starting and finishing at the main race start.  It will start at 09:20.

The Fun Run will also raise funds for our race charity Claire House. 

Fun Run Entry = £6 which includes a £1 donation to Hope House Children's Charity(the cost may be more if you decide to donate more during the entry process).

Each Fun Run participant will be given a souvenir race t shirt and race number, with all finishers receiving a bespoke medal, bottle of water and a treat.

Adults accompanying/running with their children also need to enter the Fun Run. 

This is a fun run and not a race with the aim being to involve as many people as possible.  With this in mind, everyone is a winner and there are no official timings or prizes.

There are limited places, and these will be issued on a first-come first-served basis.
