We have been extensively researching into what runners consider important, and sustainability is fast becoming the most important area. Click HERE to see what RunThrough is doing for sustainability.
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 (Women – CLICK HERE | Men – CLICK HERE) with a retail value of £25.5 (inc postage) for £8 (inc postage) with the addition of the event logo printed on the chest.
Here at RunThrough we are always looking for likeminded people to join our community. We always value an extra pair of hands and would love for you to come along and help us! From managing stalls at the event village to handing out medals at the finish, our volunteers are a critical part of what make RunThrough events so special! If you fancy volunteering with us as a volunteer at his event or any of our other events please click HERE
We can do this with our partner RT Kit as part of a strategic decision to not only raise awareness about the quality of the product but also to counteract the increasing costs incurred in event production in a post-COVID world.

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.
The Chester ‘Pink Route’ takes you from the city centre to our main entrance – or you can take the ‘Brown Route’ along the canal. Both routes can be found on this PDF. Or you can plan a cycle route using this online tool from the Chester Cycling Campaign.
How to get here 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.
How to get here by Bus:
There are lots of bus routes nearby and many come right to the main entrance.
If you’re travelling 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 travelling from Liverpool you can also take the Number 1 service or the X1 service (which has fewer stops and is a quicker!).

The car park is located next to the start and finish line and we therefore recommend leaving any belongings in your car. There will be an informal baggage drop located within the Event Village. If you wish to use the baggage drop, please collect a baggage label from the information desk and attach it to your bag before handing it in.
You will need to show your race number again when collecting your bag to ensure each bag is reunited with its rightful owner.
There will be portaloos within the event village.
There will be water provided at the 5k point of the race, and there will also be water available at the finish.
During the race
We will have marshals all around the course as well as km signs and arrows. The course will run through the Zoo, then out onto the closed roads for the 10k course before finishing back inside the Zoo.
Results will be available on the website after the race.
We will have a photographer taking a few snaps of the race and they will be on Facebook after the race so be sure to check it out and see if you can spot yourself.
