Running on the Bath Skyline

Runners enjoying the Bath Skyline countryside

You might have enjoyed a walk on the Bath Skyline, but how about using the woodland paths and meadows for some running training?

Bath Skyline parkrun

The ever-popular Bath Skyline parkrun takes place every Saturday morning around Claverton Down.

Parkrun enables thousands of people to get out for a social 5km run every week. The event starts at 9am, it's not a race, it's free, and is a great setting to get fit and build your running confidence in a friendly environment.

You just need to register once on the parkrun website. Then bring your own personal barcode along to the run, get it scanned at the end, and a few hours later you'll get an email with your run time.

Find out more about the Bath Skyline parkrun on their course webpage.

A run in nature

A 6-7 miles guided trail run around the Bath Skyline, finishing with a well-earned breakfast at Prior Park. These events are led by our multi-talented Bath Skyline ranger, and running coach, and provide a good run, some hills to challenge the legs, but also some brief stops for a breather and to admire the views of Bath along the way.

These events will run later in 2020, with an opportunity to follow the changing seasons around the Bath countryside in summer and autumn.
