2018 will be the 9th MBNA Chester Marathon and 5th MBNA Metric Marathon (26.2 Kilometers), and we have developed an enviable reputation with runners of all levels and abilities. We are runners ourselves and it is our passion to deliver a world-class mass participation race.
The 2018 MBNA Chester Marathon will again host the England Age Group Marathon and the BMAF Masters Marathon Championships.
The fast and predominantly flat route is 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 an unforgettable finish at the Racecourse. The support in the villages and communities along the course is one of the many highlights of the race.
There will also be a 1-mile kids fun run which will open for entries closer to race day.
