Highlights

You'll be surrounded by Nature throughout your race.

Overview

The hills begin 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). These 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.


Bath Running Festival Trivia

The organization says it offers "some of the best feed stations you will find at any race!" so chances are that you'll have a great culinary experience!
