What can you expect from the Bath Running Festival?
From the 10km Runners
This was my first Relish Running event as I have recently had to give up
road running. I absolutely loved the course as the terrain was
different for me.Have already entered Lacock and just about to enter
Lynne St Aubyn
Cheerful marshals who alwawys smiled and encouraged the runners.
Also liked the goody-bag: simple and effective.
The course was testing which was good, the setting and the view made for
a great morning. Would like to try the half marathon next year. Liked
the orange wedges provided at the finish they were very much
Beautiful, open, varied route.
Really well marked.
Parking/registration/loos/start all close together which avoids any last
minute panics about needing a last minute trip to the loo or having
brought/left the wrong things in your car etc.
Marshalls clear with instructions but also happy & encouraging.
Fruit at the end. Peter Abram
Checking in was fast and efficient.
Start was smooth and instructions at start where clear and helpful.
From the Long Half Marathon Runners
The views and mixture of terrain. You should advertise the race as the
most beautiful in Britain. Also the pit-stop were very good and the
marshals were all excellent
- Challenging course set in beautiful countryside.
- Excellent marshals, drinks/food stations, course route signs.
- All the various races set on the same day added to the pre-race atmosphere. Family friendly.
- Excellent facilities at the University with parking next to the start/finish area.
It certainly was challenging, the views were magnificent, the best bit
was definitely managing to finish it. The marshals and organisation was
second to none - superb thank you.
It's a beautiful course and generally the marshalls are friendly and
helpful. There was great support out on the route. It's good value for
money and the snacks, etc., afterwards are a nice touch
Without doubt the best after race refreshments
From the Marathon Runners
Scenery - amazing. Marshalling & refreshments - equally amazing.
Variety: roads to climbing up paths. Informal but well organised.
I'd like to say how absolutely great the marshalls were, loads of water,
super cakes, massively encouraging. Congratulations to all concerned
for a brilliant first event. All ran so well you would have thought it
had been running for years.
route was tough going but an absolute pleasure to run.
signage on the entire route was excellent.
feed stations were all excellent.
marshalls around the course were all fantastic.
excellent advise given to carry own water supply - it was very much
It was a great event. Way much harder than I expected, but no bad thing
for that. Certainly not your average 26.2 miler though. Excellent route
marking, lovely friendly efficient marshals, top water/feed stations,
nice medal and goody bag. Thank you
Devon’s infamous Grizzly Run feels like a cuddly teddy bear by comparison.
The Marshals were fantastic. Well signposted in between. The route was
very tough, but the scenery was stunning with some hidden gems, even for
a Bath boy.
