Thursday 22nd August


The route passes Hack Green Secret Nuclear Bunker at mile 9, and goes through Dorfold Hall, after exiting Nantwich at mile 13.

Finishing at Chester Cathedral means leaving time for a fantastic city walk including many historical sites.

Chester marathon is also one of the most loved road marathons.
