Further information

The Bath Running Festival is a celebration of off-road running around the beautiful hills and valleys of Bath. All the runs take in breath taking views of Bath from Sham Castle and the open meadows above Bathampton. The longer the race, the more hills, and fantastic views you will get to experience. The half marathon and marathon routes include sections along the Kennet & Avon Canal and through the historic Sydney Gardens.rnrnThe hills begin for the half marathon and marathon runners on the original Roman Fosse Way (straight up for 1 mile at 8% or so) and this theme continues as the route traverses the valleys in St Catherines and up to the famous Solsbury Hill (of Peter Gabriel fame). This views from the site of this Iron Age Fort are very special, with views down to Bath, down all the surrounding valleys and over to all the other hills on the route. rnrnAll the races are designed to be fun, friendly and hilly! We put on glorious buffets of fresh fruit and tasty treats at the feed stations around the course and at the finish line, we have a great team of marshals to point you in the right direction and to cheer you round. All finishers will receive a custom made medal and other goodies to reward them for their efforts!
