The 2024 Essar Chester Half Marathon on 19th May marks the 42nd edition of this historic award winning race. We are also hosting a qualifier for the England Athletics Age Group Masters Championships.
The event boasts a lively city centre start and finish, with a route that takes in all the city centre sights, surrounding picturesque countryside and all the enthusiasm you could ask for from the Cestrian supporters who line the course to cheer you on.
We don’t think anyone in our community should have to face going hungry, which is why we have partnered with the West Cheshire Foodbank to ask all race participants to bring along an item of canned food to donate at our collection point, near Help Desk, on race day – every can helps!
