Alongside your charity, the event organisers offer support in the form of monthly training sessions & seminars.
The Chester half marathon is famous for being an enjoyable event and has won many awards over the years including the Runner's World best marathon of the year and sweatshop's best mass participation award.
“Meningitis Now are committed to the fight against meningitis. We save lives and rebuild futures by funding research, raising awareness and providing support for people whose lives have been changed by meningitis.
We’ve been leading this fight for 35 years and we’re proud of the difference we’ve made. But we know the battle isn’t over yet. Every day, we estimate 22 people in the UK contract meningitis. For us, that’s 22 too many.
With the help of our supporters, we will continue to save lives, rebuild futures and keep going until the fight is won. ”
