Event Information

Please read through all the information carefully below ahead of time so you are familiar with how to arrive on site and how the waves of runners will be organised. The Two Tunnels Park & Ride service (TT1) is shown below, please check the timetable in advance. Each service can hold a maximum of 90 people per journey and we are expecting 500 runners to use the service so we recommend runners spread themselves out across the services as suggested in the Event Information document.


How to get to the Bath Two Tunnels


The Two Tunnels events are being staged at Brickfields Open Space (BA2 1LX) in the city of Bath.

If you live in Bath please consider walking or cycling to the site in the spirit of our event partner Sustrans. We will provide bike racking for cyclists :-)

If you are driving to Bath please park at Odd Down Park & Ride (BA2 8PA) and catch the Two Tunnels bus to the race site (£2.50 return). From here it is a 500m walk to the race site which will be signed and we will have marshals on the ground to guide you to the site.

Oldfield Park train station is approximately 800m from Brickfields.

Important Notices - May and September Events

The Half Marathon and Marathon are taking in some fantastic city centre sites. We are making use of public footpaths and not closing any roads. Therefore there are places were runners will have to cross potentially busy roads. All major crossing points have either Zebra or Pelican Crossings and will also be marshaled. The marshals do not have the power to stop the traffic. You must wait and make your own decision as to when to cross the road. You may have to wait a few seconds for a light to change so please be patient and take the opportunity to catch your breath. Anyone deemed to make an unsafe road crossing by one our marshals will be disqualified. Whilst this is a race, your safety is our highest priority and the same rules of the road apply during the race as at another time – do not put yourself or others runners at risk for the sake of a few seconds!

All paths used by the race are open to the general public, many of whom use the routes as their regular walking routes. Please make the event a success by being polite and courteous to the others users of these paths so that has a positive impact on everyone involved.

There is a cut off of 3hrs for Marathon runners to reach the half marathon/marathon split. This is at approximately 14.0 miles (ie beyond where you cross the Start Line for a second time). If runners have not crossed this line after 3hrs from the start of the marathon event you will be asked to complete the Half Marathon course and you will be awarded a Half Marathon time and goody bag.

To ensure the Half Marathon and Marathon runners complete the course the runners will be required to grab a coloured elastic band at Feed Station 4, by the Bath weir in the centre of town. Half Marathon runners will be expected to be carrying 1 band when they cross the finish line, Marathon runners should be carrying 2 bands - 1 for each lap.

Please do not run with ipods or similar so can you hear the marshals instructions, be aware of other users in the tunnels (think cyclist's ringing their bells to come past you!) and traffic on the sections of the course that cross roads. Thank you!
