Overview

The ALDI Chester 10K is Chester's only city-based 10K and is the first event of the Chester Triple Series

This predominantly flat course starts from the iconic Chester Racecourse and heads north-west out of the City along wide roads allowing runners to rapidly settle into race pace, then passing close to the picturesque village of Mollington, before returning to the heart of Chester City centre passing the historic Victorian town hall and Medieval Cathedral, before finishing on Eastgate Street with a spectacular backdrop of the Eastgate Clock.

All finishers will receive a technical T-shirt, bespoke medal and goody bag.

There is a two wave start (Orange Wave & Blue Wave) to give runners the best experience on race day.

Orange Wave - 09:00
Blue Wave - 09:30
 
You can choose your start time during the entry process.

Both waves will include runners of all abilities to ensure there is an even spread and runners have plenty of space right across the course. However if you are an elite runner or have achieved times of sub 40 minutes (men) or sub 45 minutes (women) in 2019 or 2020 please enter the Orange Wave.

Enjoyed my first race back in my home city of Chester, and managed a 10K PB too.  Fast start and not too much in the way of elevation, but a couple of sustained climbs across the course, and a draining final kilometre back into the City centre, including the cobbled sec...Read full review
