Training Runs & Plans

Training runs

We've got a series of training runs scheduled for 2024, so why not come along and join us? We'll have a range of pace runner led groups and everybody is welcome. 

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 all of you who have joined us for our previous runs this year. 

Check back later in the year for our schedule of 2024 training runs. 
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.

*parking charges do apply here but there are lots of places to park nearby.
