About the Event

The meeting point is in the picnic area (free parking) roughly 200 metres behind The Swan pub. The route begins by climbing up to the iconic Kelston Round Hill with 360 degree views overlooking the local area. We then use parts of the Cotswold Way to include Bath Racecourse and Lansdown Golf Club in our loop. Finally, with some road links, we work our way via the village of Upton Cheyney back to our start point.

Approximate Distance: 20km

Approximate Elevation: 500m
