Welcome to the 2021 MBNA Chester Marathon!
The MBNA Chester Metric Marathon is now a popular fixture in the race calendar, giving you the only opportunity in the UK to run over this distance. This is a 26.2km (16.3mile) race which is the ideal stepping stone from a half marathon to a full marathon.
We are looking forward to the 7th MBNA Chester Metric Marathon on 3rd October 2021 and hope that you choose to run with us. Our 2021 event will be back bigger and better than ever.
The MBNA Chester Metric Marathon is one of the events in our Chester Triple series - run three for a Chester Triple medal!
As runners ourselves, we are passionate about delivering what for us, would be the perfect race; a premier quality, competitively priced race which caters for the needs of runners of all
The route is on closed roads and you will run past all Chester's iconic landmarks (Roman Walls, Cathedral, Medieval Rows, Eastgate Clock, Amphitheatre) before heading out to the stunning Cheshire countryside and villages. After joining the marathon runners at Aldford you begin the return journey, coming into Chester alongside the River Dee for a unforgettable finish at the Racecourse. The support in the villages and communities along the course is one of the many highlights of the race.
With our web site packed with all the information you need about the race, our free monthly paced training runs, seminars and 700 dedicated and enthusiastic race day volunteers, we are here for you to help you achieve your goals and enjoy the race day experience.
