Essar Chester Half Marathon

The fantastic Essar Chester Half Marathon is back on 19 May

Here’s why you should pick Chester for your 13.1-mile challenge in 2019:

Fast course
The Essar Chester Half Marathon is one of the largest and longest running half marathons in the UK. 60% of runners achieve a PB on this course.

See the sights
Starting at the prestigious Chester Racecourse, renowned for its excellent facilities, the fast, predominantly flat route (on fully closed roads) takes you past many of Chester's historic landmarks; through the imposing Roman Walls and between the famous Medieval Rows before heading out to the stunning Cheshire countryside.

Feel the love
Once you have returned to the City, you’ll be greeted to a finish area that is second to none! Flanked by the Victorian Chester Town Hall and Chester Cathedral, you’ll be cheered on by the legendary masses of local supporters as you cruise back through the Walls to journey’s end and a well-deserved medal and quality T-shirt.

The full package
The event features Athlete Tracking and Live Results posted directly to Facebook and Twitter feeds. This, plus goody bags, drink stations at 6 locations on the route and the option to run alongside an experienced Pace Runner makes for a half marathon experience to remember.
