Essar Chester Half Marathon

The route starts at Chester Racecourse, before heading up Watergate Street, through The Walls, along the inner ring road to Bridge Street. Then it's through the centre of the city and out via the Garden Quarter to join Parkgate Road, towards Two Mills. Shortly before Two Mills, the runners will start their return to Chester, via Woodbank, Saughall and back onto Parkgate Road for a City Centre finish by the Town Hall and Cathedral.

It is a fast course, with the first half on wide roads to ensure that there will be no congestion, so that everyone gets a good start.

Drinks stations will be every 3 miles, providing bottled water and portable toilets. We'll guarantee that we'll have lots of enthusiastic volunteers to help and support you along the way.
