Marathon Route: The spectacular marathon route is both historic and scenic. You can expect some fast times over this stunning PB marathon course on closed roads. Runners leave the racecourse and head into the City centre passing the Town Hall, Cathedral, Eastgate Clock, Amphitheatre and through the Roman Walls before heading out of the City across the Old Dee Bridge. The route then leaves Chester past the Duke of Westminster's estate, through Pulford, before crossing the border into Wales and the villages of Lavister and Rossett. Keeping to the rural lanes runners complete a small loop before entering the historic village of Holt. Then crossing the ancient Roman bridge at Farndon to return to England and the home stretch running through Churton, Aldford and Huntington. On re-entering the City, runners pass the River Dee along the Groves and Castle Drive before a triumphant finish at the racecourse! The route is largely flat with some short hills or gradual climbs which are predominantly in the second half of the course.
