GUIDED RUNNING TOURS

The Perfect Way for Runners to See Bath

Guided Running Tours Around Bath’s Famous Landmarks

Are you a runner who is visiting Bath? Instead of a traditional walking tour or even the open top tourist bus, why not join a guided running tour of Bath? According to the VisitBath website, Bath is ‘The Original Wellbeing Destination’ and tells us that Bath was built for pleasure and relaxation. It is well documented that Bath (aka Aquae Sulis) has been enjoyed since Roman times as a wellbeing destination – look no further than the Roman Baths. Whilst visitors can no longer bathe in the original Roman Baths, the modern Thermae Bath Spa is a popular relaxation destination for both tourists and local residents.

Where will we go and what will we see on our guided run tour?

Our guided running tours of Bath allow you to see not only many of the wonderful sights of this world heritage city, including the Theatre Royal, Queen’s Square, the Royal Crescent and the Circus to name just a few, but will also provide some stunning views from the nearby surrounding hills.

We’ll start outside the Abbey at either 9am or 11am (please check which time you’ve booked) and will work our way up through town via some of the City’s famous crescents to the High Common. From here (and a few more crescents) we’ll descend back down and cross over the river Avon, taking in a short section of the canal before climbing up gently again onto the fields to get a breathtaking view of the whole City laid out in front of you.

We then run back across the river with a fantastic view of the weir and finish outside the front of the Abbey. The run tour is approximately 8km / 5 miles although we can arrange different run tour distances / times / locations as required – just contact us.

What pace will we run at? Do I need to be a fast runner?

You most certainly do not need to be a speedy runner! The pace will be gentle and we’ll run as a group – you’ll want plenty of time to view all the wonderful Georgian buildings and architecture, and stop and take photos. By nature Bath is a hilly city and the run tour route does include a couple of gentle inclines. The terrain is mostly tarmac but there is a very small section of field and path, which is not normally muddy.

How long will the guided run tour take?

The tour will take about 1.5 – 2 hours (depending on how many times we stop!) so we should be back at the Abbey by 10.30-11am or 12.30-1pm depending on start time.

Do you do group discounts?

Groups discounts are available – just select the ticket for your group size. If booking for more than 6 people, please contact us.
