please welcome the Chester Ultra.

50 Miles of Beautiful Trail Running following the River Dee, Marches Way, and on through the Heart of Chester onto the Shropshire Canal, the North and Mid Cheshire Way, taking in some of the very best of the beautiful Sandstone Trail via Helsby Hill, Frodsham, Delamere Forest and then rejoining the Shropshire Canal to the Finish on the outskirts of Chester.

The course is a loop so the Start & Finish are the same location. This is a supported ultra marathon so the team will have checkpoints supporting you en route including another Village Hall.

In the meantime, if you are interested, please send us a message and we will try to keep you informed of developments...

The course was absolutely stunning and certainly exceeded my expectations. I had no idea Cheshire was so hilly. Whilst the hills were hard, they also brought a new challenge, tremendous views, great descents and an eventual drop to the canal and the 6 miles to the finish. GB Ultra's organisation was wonderful. Signposting the course was great, which can't be easy over such a vast course. The support from the aid stations was humbling (all that cake - sorry I felt too sick by mile 30 to eat it!). I definitely recommend it to all. The pain in my quads today (Monday) tells of a challenging yet very run-able course. The perfect goal to keep you motivated through the winter. Oh and the weather was incredible ... lucky as you like! Thank you very much GB Ultra!!! Dave McHale
