Join #teamSJA

Join this world-class event with St John Ambulance and join the team that saves lives.

The fast and largely flat route starts in the city centre at the Chester Racecourse, you'll then run through the pretty, historic streets of Chester and out of the city onto wide roads. There will be plenty of support and music to keep you motivated. You'll then return to Chester for an incredible finish outside the Town Hall and Cathedral.

The route through the City of Chester will be lined with our volunteer first aiders, there to help those who need it, as well as cheer you on!

How we'll support you

Run for us and we’ll be with you every step of the way – literally. Our dedicated volunteers will be lining the route, ready if you need them to pick you up, dust you down and get you over the finish line. We’ll give you advice on training, a running vest and fundraising support to help you hit your fundraising targets. 

Our support package includes:

  • • training and fundraising support
  • • a St John Ambulance running vest
  • • cheers of support from the St John Ambulance team out on the course
  • • a souvenir certificate to commemorate your awesome achievement
