Race Description:

SEE OUR FULL CHESTER MARATHON RACE REVIEW HERE - A fantastic event, superbly organised.

 

The 2021 12th MBNA Chester Marathon is a must do on any marathon runners calendar.  Catering for runners of all levels, the organisers are runners themselves and they have the drive and passion to arrange a fabulous race with many runners returning year on year.

This is a PB marathon course, so fast times are aplenty which takes place on closed roads with 19 miles being in England and 7 miles in Wales.  The race takes in many of Chester's iconic landmarks including the Cathedral, Medieval Rows, Roman Wells, the Ampitheatre and the historical Eastgate Clock. The race then heads out into the Cheshire and North Wales stunning countryside, returning along the River Dee and back to the Racecourse.  
The support along the whole of the course will keep your spirits lifted along with bands, music and entertainment.

There are drinks stations every 2.5 to 3 miles with bottled water at all 9 stations.  Lucozade Sport drink and High5 Energy Aqua gels are also available along the route.

Chip timing is available at 10k, 20k, 30k and 40k along with social media athlete tracking, so you can share your progress with your family and friends.

All finishers will receive that all important medal, a super goodie bag and a technical T-shirt.

Quite a flat course, the first half quicker than the second though.
