Event Details

Join us at the MBNA Chester Marathon - 2nd October 2022

The MBNA Chester Marathon is the UK's best marathon (up to 5,000 runners), as voted at the 2018, 2019 & 2020 Running Awards. We are also hosting the England Athletics Age Group Masters Championships.

The event boasts a lively city centre start and finish, with a route that passes all Chester's iconic landmarks, then heads out into the Cheshire & North Wales countryside, before returning along the banks of the River Dee for an unforgettable finish and all the enthusiasm you could ask for from the Cestrian supporters who line the course to cheer you on.
