Organiser's Description

The Essar Chester Half Marathon is one of the UK’s longest established and most highly regarded half marathons. This chip timed, fast and largely flat race will be run entirely on closed roads.

We have a new route for 2020 which offers one of the flattest routes in many years, with a spectacular city centre finish. You will run past some of Chester's historic landmarks at the very start of the race too. The route starts at Chester Racecourse and loops around the city before heading out into the countryside on Parkgate Road. Runners will weave through the villages of Mollington, Lea by Backford & Saughall before returning to the city for the finish outside the Town Hall and Cathedral with cheering crowds of welcoming spectators a plenty.

All finishers will receive a technical T-shirt, bespoke medal and a top quality goody bag.

(Rescheduled date from 17th May 2020)
