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.

It's a traffic free route out and back along the river path. We will release more information about the runs closer to the time.
