Brickfields Park, Bath, BA2 1LX

Join us in Bath for one of this year's exciting Two Tunnels Railway Races with a range of running distances from 5km to 50km.

These events take in the iconic Bath Two Tunnels route, which passes through two former railway tunnels, one of which is over a mile long.

Organised by Relish Running Events, this is the fourth year of these fantastic running events.

There are plenty of options to choose, 5km, 10km, 50km, Marathon, Half Marathon and the fun fuelled 300m or 1 mile Colourburst Runs, so you can find the run that's right for you. All the races will allow you to take in the beautiful sights of the historic city of Bath.

The event will start and finish at Brickfields Park - the perfect place for a family picnic after your run.  

All runners will receive a custom designed medal, goody bag and a selection of fresh fruit and treats around the course and at the finish line.

How can I run to raise money for Sustrans?

It's simple. You fill in our sign up form, we'll then get in touch to confirm your place and send you some hints and tips to make fundraising easy.

We'd love you to raise as much as you can, with a target of at least £100.

In 2017, with donations from the events and fundraisers, we raised over £4,000. This year, with your support, we'd like to do even better. We spend around £1 million a year to maintain and repair the parts of the Network so every contribution is vital.

As a thank you, all Sustrans runners will receive: 

  • a green Sustrans running vest
  • a fundraising guide filled with hints and tips to support you.

If you've already bought a place and want to join 'team Sustrans' and raise money for us that would be great - just let us know.

Where does the money raised go?

Sustrans has to cover the costs of the maintenance of the tunnels and so events using the route provide a brilliant opportunity to raise money to keep them in tip top condition.

All funds raised from the event will go directly to Sustrans so we can continue to work on routes such as the Two Tunnels Greenway and keep the 14,000 mile National Cycle Network going and growing.
