Overview

The multi-award winning, UK’s Best Marathon up to 5,000 runners two years in a row and the UK's only international full marathon from the historic Roman/Medieval international destination City of Chester starts at 9:00am on Sunday 4th October.

The MBNA Chester METRIC Marathon is now a popular fixture in the race calendar, giving you the only opportunity in the UK to run over this distance. This is a 26.2km (16.3mile) race which is the ideal stepping stone from a half marathon to a full marathon and starts at 10:15am on Sunday 4th October.

As runners ourselves we are passionate about delivering what for us would be the perfect race; a premier quality, competitively priced race which caters for the needs of runners of all abilities and speeds, combined with friendliness and personal touches which are unique to us. The fast and largely flat spectacular city and rural race route combined with enthusiastic support and regular drinks/nutrition stations helped a record 70% of our runners achieve personal best times.

My second time running Chester. Bad weather meant a slight change in the course and different start and finish place that weren’t ideal. Baggage claim at the end was horrendous. The race itself was well organised and the quality of the goody bag was first class. Not my day for a ...Read full review

My second time running Chester Marathon and I still have so many good things to say about this event! It's very well organised, the pace teams are fantastic, as are the volunteers and crowds mainly through the little villages and the Chester section. The goodie bag is amazing...Read full review
