Description: 

The race will start and finish at Chester Racecourse close to Chester city centre, which will provide a spectacular backdrop and outstanding facilities for both runners and spectators.

The fast (and mainly flat) route is on closed roads covering 19 miles in England and 7 miles in Wales. You will run past all Chester's iconic landmarks before heading out to the stunning Cheshire and North Wales countryside and villages; returning along the banks of 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, with bottled water at every station and Sainsbury's Orange Sport drink at 6, 12, 18 & 22 miles. We will have chip timing with 10k and halfway splits. All finishers will receive a quality goody bag, as well as a long sleeved technical T-shirt and a bespoke medal.
