It’s a back to back half marathon for Sarah Myers today as a precursor to her ultimate challenge this year in the form of the Loch Ness marathon.
Returning to Capesthorne Hall for the third year, this notoriously flat and fast course provides the perfect opportunity for a personal best race over the half marathon distance in 2021.
Capesthorne Hall is a place of enormous character, charm and interest. Visitors are frequently struck by the warm and intimate atmosphere and the feeling that Capesthorne Hall is a much-cherished family home. The Gardens, which are amongst the finest in Britain, are outstanding for their vitality, variety and historical interest and are particularly celebrated for the magnificent double herbaceous border. The Hall is an impressive example of a Victorian country house built in the Elizabethan style, all in all the perfect venue to host a race or so the hosts Run Through Events must have thought!
The 2021 Cheshire Half Marathon has a brand new road closed route.
