We are delighted to have the team from Chester Marathon sponsoring the #ukrunchat hour on Sunday 7th June.

We’ve recently ran a competition with Chester marathon and 4 lucky winners will already be making their way to Chester on 4th October for either the marathon or metric marathon (26.2km).

Many more of you have signed up for both races already. Let us know if you have and let us know if you’re #teamred or #teamblue !

We’d love to see more of you joining us as UKRunChat will be at the event with an exclusive tent near the start / finish line. More details can be found below.

What you need to know about Chester:

The multi-award winning and UK’s only international marathon from the historic Roman/Medieval international destination City of Chester.

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 2014 runners achieve personal best times.

With our web site packed with all the information you need about the race, our  free monthly paced training runs, seminars and team of race day pace runners, we are here for you to help you achieve your goals and enjoy the race day experience.

Thanks to the dedication and enthusiastic support of our team and the 700 volunteers, combined with feedback from runners and the backing of many we are proud that Runner’s World runners voted us the UK’s best marathon in 2012 and the best road marathon in 2013. In 2013 we also won Sweatshop’s best mass participation race award.
