Bath is famous for its hills and beautiful hill top views. We have the Beast of Bath Challenge series which takes in these fantastic hills and offers all runners who complete the challenge a special commemorative trophy to mark their achievement, alongside a custom medal awarded after each individual event.
A huge congratulations to everyone who completed the Mini Beast and Beast of Bath Challenge. Very well deserved trophies. Final standings are shown below. We produce final standings for interest, there are no winner's prizes across the Beast series.
Pipley Wood Mud Bath: The Mud Bath is a muddy trail running race with a few natural obstacles thrown in, the odd fallen tree, the odd stream crossing. The run goes through the ancient woodland of Pipley Wood on the outskirts of Bath. With a hog roast and beer on offer after the race, expect a great run and awesome post race atmosphere. A great race to complete with friends who enjoy getting muddy this winter.
Two Tunnels Hilly Races: Both routes take in the short and long old railway tunnels but then turn off the old railway tracks for some further exploration. Both take in some beautiful woodlands and one good sized hill, other than that, the routes are largely flat.
Bath Running Festival: The Bath Running Festival is our showcase hilly Bath event with a single lap half marathon and a two lap marathon. The routes takes in the original Roman Fosseway which climbs straight up Bannderdown Hill (the modern road taking a much more gentle and windy route compared to the linear Roman path). The now infamous Stoney lane will get your legs burning before the climb up to Solsbury Hill which offers 360 degree views around the city and beyond. The finale mile of these races up another large hill to the amphitheatre finish at the University of Bath.
