Chester Round the Walls Race
Chester Round the Walls Run Boxing Day December
Although weather and walls conditions have caused many variations to its route, the Boxing Day running of this race has remained a constant event in the city since since its inception in 1972. The standard route is between 4.5 and 5 miles, starting on the Roodee racecourse and following almost the full 2-mile length of the Roman and Medieval walls, to finish back on the racecourse.
