Your MBNA Chester Marathon Cancellation Options
We would like to thank you for your patience as we've tried our best to navigate our way through the fallout of the Covid-19 pandemic, from when we first announced the postponement of the Essar Chester Half Marathon and again as we announced the cancellation of all our remaining 2020 events and the 2020 Chester Triple.
Our full focus has now turned to our 2021 events and how we can come back with a full calendar of extra special events. We would of course love for you to be a part of them too!
The 11th MBNA Chester Marathon will take place on 3rd October 2021.
There are various options available to runners entered into the 2020 MBNA Chester Marathon at the time of cancellation, these are outlined in the event email all runners received on 16th July and in the boxes below.
Please make a decision by 31st July 2020, after this date you are waiving your rights to choose an option and your entry will be cancelled.
If you won a free place, used a discount or charity code to enter into the 2020 MBNA Chester Marathon, you have automatically been deferred to 2021.
Please read through all options below and use the email you were sent on 16th July to decide which option you would like to accept.
If you are unsure of anything please see our FAQ's.
Our events would not be possible without the support of our runners and your desire to run with us. Many of you come from across the UK & abroad to take part.
If you'd like to take part in the full event and experience all the fun that the MBNA Chester Marathon race day has to offer, we are giving you the opportunity to defer your entry place to the 2021 MBNA Chester Marathon which will take place on the 3rd October 2021.
If you are unable to make the date of the 2021 MBNA Chester Marathon scheduled for 3rd October or have decided that running a Marathon is not for you, we are able to refund your entry.
Please note that by opting for a 50% refund your entry will be cancelled and your rights to defer to 2021 will be waived, this cannot be undone.
If you would prefer to receive a full 100% refund of your entry fee, plus 100% of any additional add-ons that you ordered, you are able to select this option.
Please note that by opting for a 100% refund, your entry will be cancelled and your rights to defer to 2021 will be waived, this cannot be undone.
This option is only intended for runners who have entered the race using a transfer from another runner or using a free place, and who are unable to make the date of the 2021 MBNA Chester Marathon scheduled for 3rd October or have decided that running a Marathon is not for them.
