    Walk Chester

    Following in the footsteps (quite literally) of our 2023 Bike Oxford event, we are adding a Walk Chester event to the Bike Chester weekend. The 12 mile route heads out of the Rugby Club and along the Millennium Greenway before joining the Shropshire Union Canal. Walkers follow the canal into Chester from the north, around the Race Course alongside the River Dee and through historic Chester following the City Walls and back to the rugby club along the canalside path. All walkers will receive map with local history before the walk and a medal and a meal at the end of the walk.

    The event may appeal to:
