Join MBNA Chester Marathon 2023

All abilities, ages, fun and charity runners are welcome in the MBNA Chester Marathon, the 3x winner of the UK's best marathon (up to 5,000 runners). The event is the final race in the Chester Triple Medal series (enter and finish our 10K & Half Marathon in the same year for extra special, extra large and extra gold medal)

The MBNA Chester Marathon is a great introductory race for new marathon runners and an ideal stepping stone for runners looking for more than a half marathon. We are the UK’s only international marathon from the historic Roman/Medieval international destination City of Chester, and host the England Athletics Age Group Masters Marathon Championship adding to an already unforgettable atmosphere.

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.

WHATEVER YOUR REASON FOR RUNNING, WE'RE HERE TO HELP YOU ACHIEVE GREATNESS

The event organiser will send you a confirmation email separate to the Worlds Marathon confirmation email, that will contain important information regarding the event and to acknowledge they have received your entry.

Frequently asked questions

When and where can I collect my BIB/race pack?

keyboard_arrow_down

For those with a non-UK address your pack will be available for collection on the day before race day and on race day at the help desk. For UK runners we will post out entries that are completed in time. Late entries will be able to collect their race numbers from Help Desk during race week.

What is the cancelation/refund policy for this event?

keyboard_arrow_down

If you decide you no longer want to take part and want to cancel your entry into the event, as per our terms and conditions your race place is non refundable and we do not offer deferrals. You can always transfer your race place to someone else, free of charge any time before the event.

What is the cut-off time?

keyboard_arrow_down

Chester Marathon is a running event, and there is a race cut-off time of 6 hours. Road closures are lifted in line with the 6 hour pace, and if you are not able to achieve this you may have to withdraw for your own safety. Out of consideration for the communities we run through, there are two points where the Marathon route will close, and runners who have fallen behind the 6 hour pace will not be able to continue on the marathon route.

Can I run with a buggy or a dog?

keyboard_arrow_down

No, it is not possible to run with a buggy, or with a dog. This is against UK Athletics rules and you will be withdrawn from the course and disqualified.

Can I wear an iPod or music player?

keyboard_arrow_down

Under UK Athletics rules, on any road which is not wholly closed to traffic only "open ear" bone conduction headphones are permitted. This means that in-ear headphones can't be used in the Chester Marathon and Metric Marathon. For the Chester Half Marathon and the Chester 10K, in-ear headphones can be used. Please leave one out so you can hear the sounds around you, including warnings from marshals or blue light vehicles on the course.
