The Fun Run will be approximately one mile starting at the main race start and conducted wholly within Chester Racecourse. The run will start at 09:20, after the start of the Essar Chester Half Marathon.
The Fun Run will be open to anyone wanting to run, however, it is aimed primarily at children. Parents, guardians and grandparents are also welcome to enter. If you wish to run with your child, you must also enter yourself. This is to ensure that the number of people on the course is safe for all ages.
Each Fun Run participant will be given a souvenir race t shirt* and race number, with all finishers receiving a bespoke medal, bottle of water and a treat. Running numbers and t shirts must be collected from the Help Desk at the Racecourse. You can collect them between 14:00 and 18:00 on Saturday 18th May and between 07:30 and 08:45 on race day. If you have not collected your number by 08:45 on race day, the race charity may sell your place to another runner and they will keep all the proceeds from any sale to support their vital services.
The Fun Run fee is £4, or £5 including a £1 donation to our main race charity Northern Lights Children's Charity.
Places are limited but the event is open to all.
This is a fun run and not a race with the aim being to involve as many people as possible. With this in mind, everyone is a winner and there are no official timings or prizes.
* due to the lead time required, t shirts have been ordered based on the sizes required at previous events and sizes will be issued on a first come first served basis, when collecting your number.
Unfortunately, we are unable to offer refunds or deferrals.
