Bath Hilly Half and Ultra-10k

Date: Nov 23, 2014 11:00:00

Expect to post a PW (Personal Worst time), unless this is your first half marathon or 12.45km race - then it's PB territory!

The half marathon is 1650 feet down... and 1650 feet back up again...

For your expected finish time, add at least 15% to your PB.

A country course, with stiles, hills, tussocks, rough tracks, more hills, fantastic views and kissing gates (kissing not obligatory)

Five years in the making... a special course that makes the most of the hills and scenery of this part of the West Country!

Entry includes technical running top with runner names and race medal: All proceeds to charity.

The Bath Hilly Half Marathon and Ultra-10k will take place at 11am on Sunday 23 November starting at Bath Racecourse. The incredibly tough races have been voted among the top 10 trail races in the UK by runners voting at Runner's World, and are organised on behalf of the Rotary Club of Bath West with all proceeds to charity. Fewer than 100 places are left in each of the races.
The Bath Hilly Half events start with a flat circuit of Bath Racecourse, before plunging off the edge of the Cotswold Escarpment to descend into Bath. Runners are then obliged to reascend to the escarpment crest via the picturesque village of North Stoke. The Ultra 10k (actually a hilly 12.45km) has a single lap, while the Bath Hilly Half Marathon comprises two very tough and hilly loops.
Distance: 13.1m & 12.45km
