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.
