Essar Chester Round The Walls Race

The Essar Chester Round the Walls race is one of the oldest races in the country, the Boxing Day running of this race being a near-constant event in the city since its inception in 1972. The approximately 6km route this year starts on the Roodee, then runs briefly along a quiet canal towpath before ascending steps to follow a clockwise section of the Roman and Medieval walls, including passing under the iconic Eastgate clock, before finishing back on the racecourse.
