Seen on another thread that there is to be a Chester marathon May 31st next year does anyone have any more info`for this forth coming event?
Look forward to more info Monday, this looks like a good alternative to Mersey Marathon which we won`t have next year.
Measured the course this morning - really nice course on the Cheshire Greenway with 2 miles at the start plus 2 miles at the finish on closed roads - the race organiser says he will start publicising the race on Runners World in the next few days. With the Mersey Marathon not taking place in 2010 I imagine this will be a very successful event.
(Mr Puffy - the Greenway seemed pretty quiet today!! - and I din't find it boring at all - seems a great venue for your training runs)
Yes very promising, looks like this is going to be my first marathon.. woohoo.
count me in any travel inns/lodges in chester
There's bloody loads of very nice BnB's mate, a Travel inn, Premier Inn etc....
I'd wait for confirmation of the date then get in quick as its bound to get busy!!
also may be doing Bradford in october but got a warm up race near Bradford in march with spenborough ac called the spen 20 mile
Perhaps I am a little jaded Eric, I've done a lot of miles down there! There's a really nice B&B in a place called Mickle Trafford called The Manor, a couple of miles from the Rugby club. There's a place called the Twirl of Hay dunno if it's a premier inn or a travelodge, but it's that type of place, that's about a mile from the club. There's a new travelodge in Chester City centre, and a nice Holiday inn by the racecourse.
Who is organising the race Eric?
At last some good news concerning a marathon which is to be held not to far from home.
Chester half & full marathon within the space of two weeks, i`m sure local businesses will be very happy with the extra trade us runners will bring them. (Maybe LCC can learn from this?).
Will the course be flat, undulating or hilly?
If it is as decribed by Eric it is very flat, depends on where the turn is, there may be a footbridge.

Do we know if this is going ahead?
Oh thanks. Need to make my mind up npw between this and another one.
Do you know much about it, the course?
Claire will any other race offer you the chance of a barby in my back garden??
Here is an email I have received about it:
"This event starting at Chester Rugby Club, will be using the Greenway (Millennium Cycle Path) from Guilden Sutton in Cheshire, onto the section in Wales from Saughall to Hawarden Bridge, and at the Hawarden Bridge end there will be a loop on the Corus private roads before the runners return along the Greenway back to Chester."
