The running race is one of the oldest in the country, with the Boxing Day event being run first in 1972 and now in its 48th year.
The event starts and finishes at the Chester Racecourse (the Roodee) the oldest racecourse still used in England.
The race follows the best path to appreciate the city walls and is approximately 6km in length. This year the route takes in 1 full lap of the walls aswell as a lap around the race course.
The race start is the same as the last few years, starting by the Grandstand and featuring a lap around the perimeter of the race course with just a short section on grass and then on the riverside path. The runners will then return into the race course, run back to the start by the Grandstand, up the steps and left to proceed on one full clockwise lap of the historic city walls, passing under the iconic Eastgate clock before returning via the riverside path to the finish at the racecourse.
