Race Day 2021 will be held on Sunday 5th September
Changes for 2021
We anticipate having to make significant changes to the race in 2021 to accomodate COVID restrictions. Details will be published closer to the event
As the sun comes up on race day, there is always a real sense of excitement and anticipation. Runners and spectators pour into the city centre, traffic begins to ebb away ready for the race and the city feels very different. There is no other day like it in Bath.
Details of race day timings, Runners Village and course maps, recommended spectator points and travel information will be posted on these pages. They will also be included in the handy pocket sized Race Day Guide included in your entrants’ race pack, which we post out to all runners a couple of weeks before the race.
Take the stress out of race day by making plans now. Here you can find all the information you need beforehand, so that on race day all you have to think about is running!
