Organiser's Description

All abilities, ages and speeds are welcome in the award winning, sell-out MBNA Chester 10K. It's Chester's only city-based 10K, it's the best City Centre 10K in the North West and is the first event of the Chester Triple Series (enter and finish our 10K & Marathon or Metric Marathon in the same year for extra special, extra large and extra gold medal). Join us for what will be an amazing day.

The MBNA Chester 10K is a great introductory race for new runners and an ideal stepping stone for runners aiming for a half marathon in the future. The race will also host the England Athletics Age Group Masters 10K Championship adding to an already unforgettable atmosphere.

The event boasts a lively city centre start and finish, with a route that passes many of Chester's iconic landmarks. Runners will head north-west out of the City along wide roads allowing runners to rapidly settle into race pace, through the picturesque village of Mollington before returning to the heart of Chester for a spectacular finish on Eastgate Street with all the enthusiasm you could ask for from the Cestrian supporters, under a backdrop of the Eastgate Clock.

WHATEVER YOUR REASON FOR RUNNING, WE'RE HERE TO HELP YOU ACHIEVE GREATNESS

The event organiser will send you a confirmation email separate to the Find A Race confirmation email, that will contain important information regarding the event and to acknowledge they have received your entry.

FAQs

  • How do I get my race pack?

    For those with a non-UK address your pack will be available for collection on race day at the help desk. For UK runners we will post out entries that are completed in time. Late entries will be able to collect their race numbers from Help Desk during race week.

  • Is there a cut off time? Is there a minimum standard?

    Chester 10K is a running event and for runners' safety the roads are closed by permission of the council. The race cut off time is 90 minutes after your race start. Roads will re-open in line with this pace. If you fall behind this pace, for your own safety you may be asked to withdraw from the race and get into the sweep bus. Times for runners who finish over the cut off will not be listed on the final results.

  • Can I wear an iPod or music player?

    Under UK Athletics rules, on any road which is not wholly closed to traffic only "open ear" bone conduction headphones are permitted. This means that in-ear headphones can't be used in the Chester Marathon and Metric Marathon. For the Chester Half Marathon and the Chester 10K, in-ear headphones can be used. Please leave one out so you can hear the sounds around you, including warnings from marshals or blue light vehicles on the course. Therefore we recommend "open ear" bone conduction headphones for enjoyment and safety.

  • Can I run with a buggy or a dog?

    No, it is not possible to run with a buggy, or with a dog. This is against UK Athletics rules and you will be withdrawn from the course and disqualified.

  • How far apart are the drinks stations?

    There will be a water station at approximately half way and water for all runners at the finish.

  • Where are the toilets?

    There will be ample toilets at the start, all clearly signed. There will also be toilets at every drink station and at the finish.

  • Is there a baggage store?

    There will be a baggage store at Chester Racecourse, which will be open between 8:00 and 11:30.

spectator information

The race will take place on fully closed roads for the safety of the runners and the volunteers, therefore, there is limited access out on the course.

We suggest that spectators watch the start near the entrance to Chester Racecourse and then make their way to line the streets along the run in to the finish, down Northgate Street and Eastgate Street.

Our runners would also love their support along Garden Lane and at the top of Canal Street, just before they make their way on to the final stages of the route.

We hope you can join us in supporting and cheering on our runners on race day.

Refund Policy

If you no longer wish to take part in the event, you can transfer your race place to someone else at no extra cost, any time before the event closing date, by using the official transfer process outlined in your entry confirmation email or by logging into your Nifty account and choosing transfer my entry. Race places are not transferable between events or years.

You will be able to cancel your entry and receive a full refund (including any added extras at the time of registration), within 14 days of your purchase. As stated in our Terms and Conditions of entry, we will deduct a £5.00 administration fee from all refunds.

Notice of withdrawal from the event must be communicated by emailing [email protected] stating clearly the desire to withdraw and putting the word WITHDRAWAL in the subject line of the email. Withdrawals will not be accepted by telephone or post.

Refunds will not be issued under any circumstances after 14 days of purchase, if you enter a race within four weeks of race day or if the race sells out of general entries within 14 days of your entry. Participants can withdraw at any point prior to the race with no refund.

If you have entered the race using a transfer from another runner, we are unable to offer you the 14 day refund period, as you have not made a payment to us.

Green Runner

If you enter as a Green Runner, you will NOT receive a finisher's medal, t-shirt & goody bag. Instead the cost of these items will be donated to our official race charity the West Cheshire Foodbank. This will help us reduce waste and support our local race charity.

Your race number will clearly show you are a Green Runner so you can collect your water at the finish.

slower runners

Chester 10K is a running event and for runners' safety the roads are closed by permission of the council. The race cut off time is 90 minutes from your start time. Roads will re-open in line with this pace. If you fall behind this pace, for your own safety you may be asked to withdraw from the race.

Runners who fail to maintain this pace may need to get into the sweep bus, for their own safety.

start waves

The MBNA Chester 10K will start on Nuns Road adjacent to Chester Racecourse and utilise two Start Waves. These will be clearly indicated on your race number.

First Wave (Orange) = 09:00
Second Wave (Blue) = 09:30

Prizes will be awarded for the top 3 men and women and the winners of each age group.

It is important you start at the correct time for the wave you have chosen.
