Course information

Our 5k event offers a single lap route around the historic and beautiful City of Chester, starting and finishing within the  grounds of the world's oldest race course

The terrain is predominantly road and path with some grass sections at the start and finish within the race course. The route includes some short uphill stretches but should be suitable for most levels of fitness and experience.

Motorists are also able to drop off passengers at the New Crane Street entrance which will be monitored by a steward.
