Chester Marathon 2024

Take part in this World Series qualifying run

Want an autumn marathon to train towards in 2024? Then look no further! Chester Marathon is a sell out event and the 6th largest marathon in the UK.

Chester is also a qualifying race for the World Majors Marathon Series so why not move one step closer to your running goals and help those whose lives have been put on hold because of migraine.

You can expect some fast times over this stunning PB marathon course on closed roads covering 19 miles in England and 7 miles in Wales. You will run past all Chester’s iconic landmarks (Roman Walls, Cathedral, Medieval Rows, Eastgate Clock, Amphitheatre) before heading out to the stunning Cheshire and North Wales countryside and villages; returning alongside the River Dee for a unforgettable finish on Castle Drive. The support in the villages and communities along the course is one of the many highlights of the race.

So, grab your running shoes and join thousands of others on this historic marathon route and raise vital funds for people living with debilitating migraine.

To take part you just need to pay a £50 registration fee and pledge to raise £250 for people living with debilitating migraine. To guarantee your place, we ask that you raise at least £180 two months before the event.
