Chester Spring 5

Wednesday 10th April (7.00pm) will see the 26th running of the Chester Spring 5 race, brought to you by West Cheshire AC (kindly sponsored by Essar).

The course is a fast, chip-timed, accurately-measured five miles along rural lanes, starting and finishing at Cheshire County Sports Club. Last year’s results proved the PB potential of the course.

Entries are now open here. Entry fee £11 unattached / £9 UKA affiliated. Please note that we are not accepting postal entries or entries on the night.

There is a prize pool of over £500.

Race photos will be free to download from race photographer Bryan Dale’s website.

More details (including course map).

Our Facebook race page is here. Please like, share and watch out for the latest updates.

We hope you can join us for one of the first opportunities of the season to race midweek in daylight. And for the marathon runners out there, this could be your chance to fine-tune your speed pre-London.
