A truly special race that not only takes in many of Bath's beautiful attractions but also has the longest underground sections of any running race in the UK! Cutting right under the city of Bath, the two tunnels offer a truly unique running experience. The Somerset & Dorset Railway closed in 1966 and until April 2013 the tunnels have been sealed and inaccessible. Thanks to the hard work and dedication of the Two Tunnels Group and Sustrans over 7 years, the two tunnels now have a new lease of life as a shared use path. 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. There are events for all the family, and if they are not taking part, bring your friends and family to cheer you on; our start and finish will be in Brickfields Park in the middle of the city. A green park complete with children's playground and table tennis table, a great spot to sit and enjoy a picnic after the race.

Really great race, good mix of competitive vs casual runners. Well organised waves, event info and park and rideOnly criticism is there could be more toilets! Snacks were great after! See you for the Half marathon in August!

It was a great flat course and very well organised. Especially the park and ride option - I got my PB. The 1st tunnel was a bit dark (but I didnt mind that) I think we probably turned up a bit early as was hanging around in the cold before hand for over an hour but that was bad planning on our part. Will definitely do it again in May.

Nice, flat-ish race - almost hypnotic running through the tunnels. Head torch useful but not necessary! Get to the front of your wave, there's a narrow entrance into the track so bottlenecks at the start which is a bit frustrating.
