The Cotswold Way Challenge- Saturday 30th June and Sunday 1st July 2018 

WALK IT, JOG IT or RUN from Bath to Cheltenham- 20km, 50km or 100km



The magical Cotswold Way crosses areas of outstanding natural beauty, with fantastic panoramic views & picturesque villages. It's a great setting for a Challenge that heads out from the heart of historic Bath and 100km later and a few hills en route - it's a memorable finish line celebration in Cheltenham. This is no country ramble - and whether you walk it at a pace that suits you, jog parts of it, or run the whole course, your challenge will be a test of your determination and a journey of self-discovery. It's tough - but achievable - and you'll get full support and great hospitality all the way.

Whether you're a walker and new to endurance events, or a marathon runner looking to up the distance - the journey will be unforgettable and only finishes when you've had time to reflect on your achievement. You can join as an individual or as a team, and there’s also half & quarter distance options. With some training and determination anyone can take on the Cotswold Way – so why not get in shape, join up to 2,000 others, push yourself and do something amazing in 2018 for you and for RICE!
