MBNA Chester Metric Marathon

The route is on closed roads and you will run past all Chester's iconic landmarks (Roman Walls, Cathedral, Medieval Rows, Eastgate Clock, Amphitheatre) before heading out to the stunning Cheshire countryside and villages. You join the marathon runners after 8.5 miles and return to Chester 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 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. If any bands are interested in joining us please email

We will have chip timing with intermediate splits, with social media athlete tracking so friends and family can follow your progress.
