Fun Run

Entries for the Fun Run will open on 1 August 2020

The Essar Chester 2020 Half Marathon Fun Run will be open to anyone wanting to take part; however it is aimed primarily at children.  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 The Racecourse. The Fun Run (approximately 1 mile) will be conducted wholly within The Racecourse, starting and finishing at the main race start.  It will start at 09:20.

The Fun Run is also raising funds for our race charity Northern Lights Children's Charity.

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. 

The Fun Run entry fee is £4, or £5 including a £1 donation to our race charity.   

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.
