Training Runs

If you are interested in joining us at our 10K or Half Marathon training runs in 2025, keep your eyes on this space as details will be published soon.

Why not come along and join us? We'll have a range of pace runner led groups and everybody is welcome. 

We usually meet at The Little Roodee Car Park* CH1 1SL ready to run at 9am. 
It's a traffic free route out and back along the river path. 

These free training runs give runners the opportunity to run with others and chat about their training, gaining valuable advice, tips and encouragement as we prepare for the MBNA Chester 10K in March, the Essar Chester Half Marathon in May and the MBNA Chester Marathon & Metric Marathon in October.  

Thanks to those of you who have joined us for previous runs this year. 

For our Marathon and Metric Marathon training runs in October 2024, please see here.
