The 2021 Aldi Chester 10K is the fourth edition of this sellout race. The fast course starts at Chester Racecourse and heads north-west out of the City. Wide roads allow runners to rapidly settle into race pace, as they pass near the picturesque village of Mollington before returning to the heart of Chester City centre and finishing with a spectacular backdrop of the Eastgate Clock on Eastgate Street. All finishers will receive a tech T-shirt, bespoke medal and goody bag.

COVID Race Entry Guarantee & Covid-19 Measures
All our 2021 race entries are covered by our COVID Race Entry Guarantee (CREG), providing you with extra reassurance about entering our 2021 events. Should one of our events be cancelled due to COVID-19, our CREG means we will automatically guarantee you a place into the next scheduled race for that event, by deferring your Race Place free of charge. If you are not able to run on the re-scheduled date, for any reason, there will be other options available to you, which will be communicated to you at the time.
We will continue to follow the advice and current guidelines provided by our local council and the governing bodies for our sport. This is a highly dynamic situation and we will continually adapt and adjust our event plans as appropriate. Full details of the measures required to enable us to host Covid secure events and to ensure the safety of everyone involved, will be confirmed closer to race day. Please rest assured we are continually working behind the scenes to deliver a safe and amazing experience for our runners in 2021.
It is impossible to have a rule for every conceivable situation related to COVID-19 and your ability to attend on Race Day. If you are unable to attend on Race Day due to personal circumstances (e.g., local lockdown, quarantine, self-isolation etc), providing you retain a valid entry to the event, you may take part in our 'Run Your Way Event', covering at least the race distance between:
20th June and 15th August for the Chester 10K.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you are unable to attend on race day. We will then provide you with more details on how to submit your race data.
Taking part in the Run Your Way Event will still enable you to complete the race and qualify for the 2021 Chester Triple medal.
