Support Us : Cotswold Way Challenge

The magical Cotswold Way crosses areas of outstanding natural beauty, with fantastic panoramic views & picturesque villages. It’s great setting for a Challenge that heads out from the heart of historic Bath with quarter, half and full 100km distances available. 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 the Down’s Syndrome Association.
