MBNA Chester Metric Marathon 26.2km (16.3 miles)

2019 results are here - select Metric Marathon in Event field. Visit AWOL Adventure for your race photos (photos from both races are shown on this page).

The 2019 MBNA Chester Metric Marathon sold out - so don't leave it too late!


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. You join the marathon runners after 8.5 miles and return to 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.

Drinks stations will be at every 2.5 to 3 miles; there will be bottled water (with sports caps) at all stations, with Lucozade Sport drink and High5 Energy Gel Aqua also available on the route. There will be bands, music and entertainment along the way to entertain the crowds and runners.  If any bands are interested in joining us please email bands@activeleisureevents.co.uk.

We will have chip timing with intermediate splits, with social media athlete tracking so friends and family can follow your progress.

All finishers will receive a quality goody bag, as well as a long sleeved technical T-shirt and a bespoke medal.

And why should you have all the fun!  Check out the Mini Marathon for your young supporters.
