Fun Run entries are now open, click below to enter
The 2024 Essar Chester Half Marathon Fun Run will open for entries in April - anyone can 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 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 The West Cheshire Foodbank.
Fun Run Entry = £6 which includes a £1 donation to The West Cheshire Foodbank, (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.
