Organiser's Description

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 26.2km (16.3mile) race is the ideal stepping stone from a half to a full marathon. 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, and there will be bands, music and entertainment along the way. And why should you have all the fun! We also have a Mini Marathon for your young supporters, wholly within the Racecourse.
