Chester Cup

The Chester Cup is a flat horse race in Great Britain which is open to thoroughbreds aged four years or older. It is run at Chester over a distance of 2 miles, 2 furlongs and 147 yards (3,755 metres), and it is scheduled to take place each year in May. It is a handicap race, and it was first run in 1824.

The distance of the Chester Cup was altered twice during the 1990s. At the start of the decade it was set at 2 miles, 2 furlongs and 97 yards, and this was extended by 20 yards in 1992. The present distance was introduced in 1994.
