With a spectacular start and finish at Chester Race course, the route passes all Chester's iconic landmarks, then heads out into the Cheshire & North Wales countryside, before returningalong the banks of the River Dee for an unforgettable finish.

As runners ourselves we are passionate about delivering what for us would be the perfect race; a premier quality, competitively priced race which caters for the needs of runners of all abilities and speeds, combined with friendliness and personal touches which are unique to us.
The fast and largely flat spectacular city and rural race route combined with enthusiastic support and regular drinks/nutrition stations helped a record 70% of our runners achieve personal best times.
With our web site packed with all the information you need about the race, our free monthly paced training runs, seminars and team of race day pace runners, we are here for you to help you achieve your goals and enjoy the race day experience.
Thanks to the dedication and enthusiastic support of our team and 700 volunteers, combined with feedback from runners and the backing of many we are proud that Runner’s World runners have previously voted us the UK’s best marathon and best road marathon.
We are looking forward to the annual MBNA Chester Marathon in October and hope that you choose to run with us.
