A fast out and back course with lots of PB potential through Bath's Combe Down and Devonshire Tunnels - disused railway tunnels which until 2013 were sealed and inaccessible. This unique and truly special race takes in many of Bath's beautiful attractions, and also has the longest underground sections of any running race in the UK!

Bath Two Tunnels Railway Races – August routes

Start and finish will be in Brickfields Park in the middle of the City - a green park with children's playground, a great spot to sit and enjoy a picnic after the race. The first tunnel; The Devonshire Tunnel is 408m long and the second Combe Down Tunnel is 1672m long. Both tunnels are well lit and well surfaced, and have recently been converted into a shared use path for the enjoyments of runners, walkers and cyclists looking to make the most of the city whilst remaining a flatter ground.

    Did the 10k in 2019

    The event was huge, so well organised, lovely atmosphere, different as running through tunnels for part of the race, I recommend giving this event a go .

    I thought this was a great race, and really loved the tunnels, it was fantastic running through them in the semi-dark and cool air. The waves were a bit confusing and I took a wrong turn at the end. Next year I'll try the half. The volunteers were also amazingly helpful and cheery. Thanks very much for a great day!
  • Did the Half Marathon in 2019

    Really nice event quiet friendly and informal...... tough course with steps, gates and gradient to break your rhythm...... with an Evil finish!

    It was hot!! The event organisers planned for this with lots of reminders about how to run the race prior to setting us off. This was a brilliant event. I thoroughly enjoyed running this race and will definitely do it again!
  • Did the Half Marathon in 2018

    Great organisation and brilliant food stops. Everything was covered in email including park & ride etc
  • Did the Marathon in 2018

    Food stations were amazing. Organisation and transport to and from park and ride. Stress free marathon. Planning to do it again next year
