The multi-award winning and UK's Best Marathon up to 5,000 runners 2018 and 2019 is back for 2020. The fast and predominantly 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 (Roman Walls, Cathedral, Medieval Rows, Eastgate Clock, Amphitheatre) before heading out to the stunning Cheshire and North Wales countryside and villages; returning 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. Drinks stations will be at every 2.5 to 3 miles; there will be bottled water at all 9 stations, with isotonic drink also available on the route. There will be bands, music and entertainment along the way to entertain the crowds and runners. We will have chip timing with intermediate splits at 10k, 20k, halfway, 30k and 40k, with social media athlete tracking so friends and family can follow your progress.
