Ever fancied the challenge of a marathon? Why not run 26.2 miles for Lingen Davies around the beautiful Chester City Centre and surrounding villages?
Runners leave the racecourse and head into the City centre passing the Town Hall, Cathedral, split level Middle Ages “Rows”, 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 the way back into the City, runners pass the River Dee before a triumphant finish on Castle Drive!
The route is largely flat with some short hills or gradual climbs which are predominantly in the second half of the course.
