RUN CHESTER ZOO

Fancy dress and face paint will not be permitted due to the risk of frightening animals within the zoo!

T-Shirts at events have been a hot topic mainly around them not being a high enough quality to wear on a regular basis. So we have decided to tackle this by offering a T-Shirt with a retail value of £25.5 (inc postage) for £8 (inc postage) with the addition of the event logo printed on the chest. CLICK HERE for more details.

RUN CHESTER ZOO – Event day logistics

RUN CHESTER ZOO 10K – Road Closures

The race has a start time of 09:00 am and an expected race finish time of 11:00 am (detailed timings of race stages are included below). We are expecting there to be around 2000 runners participating in the event this year.

The race has been designed as a single lap course so that roads can be reopened as the last runners pass by (please see map on next page for details of the race route).

If you will be expecting home-carers to visit your household on the morning of Sunday 6th February then please get in contact with us by emailing info@runchesterzoo.com so we are able to create access contingency plans for you.

RunThrough Events have previous experience of organizing mass-participation races such as the iconic Hampton Court Palace Half Marathon which helps to raise vast amounts for various charities. We would be happy to support local charities by offering charitable entry places for the race, for more information please contact info@runchesterzoo.com.

VENUE & HOW TO GET THERE

By Car

The Zoo is well signposted on the main roads around Chester; just follow the motorway signs towards Chester and you will see the brown zoo signs as you approach the city.

Once you get onto the A41, from whichever direction, simply stay on that road until you reach a roundabout with a large wooden ark on it.  From there follow the signs into the zoo. Sat Navs get confused so please ignore them once you get onto the A41.  And don’t turn down Flag Lane North as it’s a dead end.

Car parking is free and disabled car parking spaces are available close to the zoo entrance. NB Blue badges must be displayed to use the disabled parking area.

Cyclists:

The Chester ‘Pink Route’ takes you from the city center to our main entrance – or you can take the ‘Brown Route’ along the canal. Both routes can be found in this PDF.  Or you can plan a cycle route using this online tool from the Chester Cycling Campaign.

By Train:

Chester Zoo is easy to reach by train and is only a couple of miles from both Chester and Bache train stations, with easy transport links from either station.

By Bus:

There are lots of bus routes nearby and many come right to the main entrance.

If you’re traveling from Chester you can take the Number 1 service from Chester Bus Exchange or the X1 bus links Chester Train Station to Chester Zoo.

If you’re traveling from Liverpool you can also take the Number 1 service or the X1 service (which has fewer stops and is quicker!).

For all other public transport options, you can call Traveline on 0871 200 2233 or visit their website here.
