In short: super day, super scenery, excellent organisation In full: My 2nd Marathon after London this year and i preferred this one. Historic Chester views followed by magnificent scenery with the local hamlets, villages and towns all coming out to cheer us on. The volunteers cheering and clapping every runner to finish in the magnificent sights of Chester racecourse. Thanks Chris and Andy. Date of review: October 5, 2014
In short: My new favourite full marathon.... In full: ... and not just because I achieved a PB. Very well organised, very friendly, great support on the route, choice of imperial or metric distances, quiet Cheshire lanes and all the roads seem to have been closed. Awesome, highly recommended Date of review: October 5, 2014
In short: Great race, really well organised. Great finish on race course In full: Great race. I've ran loads of races and the chester half/full marathons are by far the best organised races I've come across. Managed a pb this year! No issues getting of race course for me this year. It was cold this morning so great full to be able to stay in car right until last minute. Loads of really well organised drink stations.
My only negative was the slower metric marathon runners who got in my way. I was zig zagging through them. It should just be one distance.
In short: If you want to do a marathon make chester your first . Big race feel with all details covered.Organisation perfect - even free training runs available every month leading up to the day .4 hrs pace runners did a great job - thanks ! Date of review: November 4, 2013
In short: well supported, brilliantly organised event In full: Being my first marathon I wasn't sure what to to expect. From arrival to finish I found a warm welcoming atmosphere. I never felt lost with everything well signposted and plenty of stewards to ask if needed. Support from the locals was fantastic with plenty of jelly babies to keep energy levels up. All in all a great day. Date of review: October 26, 2013
