Cheshire Half Marathon – Sunday 8th October

Address: Arley Hall & Gardens, Arley, Northwich, Cheshire, CW9 6NA

Start Time: 9.30am

Race Numbers


All pre-entries will be assigned a number. To collect them you need to make your way down to the numbers desk between 8.15am – 9.05am.

There will be partial road closures on the surrounding roads so please arrive early and give yourself plenty of time to collect your race pack and get ready to run!

The race will start promptly at 9.30am. The earlier you get there, the more efficient we will be on the day. You will only need one number attached to the front of your shirt, if you have your own pins then that would be great but we will have supplies if needed. Your timing chip will also be in the envelope – follow the instructions on the back of the chip on how to attach it to your shoe. Please ensure your number and chip are on for the entire race. The chip is disposable so you can throw it away at the end.
Please ensure you attach your chip to your laces correctly, there are instructions on the back of the chip, as below:
