Both these race distance events are challenging. The Hilly Half involves 1,650ft (500m) of elevation gain. You can expect to add at least 15% to your PB for a half marathon. Finishers of the Ultra 10 km are typically out on the course for between 1hr and 1h 45mins. The course includes hills, stiles, gates, rough tracks, and uneven ground, all set with spectacular views. There is no requirement to be fast, but please only enter the event if you have a good level of general fitness and some experience of running over hilly terrain.
To maximise affordability for all and reduce our environmental impact, we will not be providing race t-shirts and have lowered entry fees accordingly. A full range of finish-line goodies (including food and drink) will be provided. Aid/refreshment/encouragement stations (with water, sweets and good wishes) will be available at Weston, North Stoke, and Prospect Stile; and the Fool-on-the-Hill will command Kelston Roundhill as before!
Prizes (tbc) will be awarded to the top three male and female finishers in both races. Additional prizes for course records will also be awarded.
To enter for one of the two races please follow this link at the bottom of this page, after you have read the rules!

This race is organised with the sole aim of raising money for local charities, namely those supported by the Rotary Club of Bathavon and Team Bath AC itself. This gives the race a strong community feel. It benefits from the extensive facilities available at Bath Racecourse, including free car parking, plenty of toilets, changing rooms, and indoor spaces to shelter in should the weather be against us. Hot drinks and cakes will be available, for a donation (we would greatly appreciate it if you could consider giving a small donation when you enter, which will help us maximise our contributions to the local causes).

Don’t confuse us with the Bath Half (https://bathhalf.co.uk/) – an equally fun, but very different flat city roads event!
