The Two Tunnels Railway Races is a truly special event that not only takes in many of Bath's beautiful attractions but also has the longest underground sections of any running race in the UK! The Devonshire Tunnel is 408m long whilst the Combe Down Tunnel is 1672m long. Both tunnels are well lit and well surfaced, and have recently been converted into a shared use path for the enjoyments of runners, walkers and cyclists.

The Course

The fast courses take runners further afield through some of Bath's famous attractions and Industrial history. From the 200 year old Dundas Aquaduct, to Tucking Mill Viaduct and Reservoir, (the home to famous Geologist William Smith who created the first Geological map of the country).

The routes will take you over the Widcombe Lock gate on the Kennet and Avon canal (the UK's 2nd deepest lock), Sydney Gardens and Cleveland House where tolls were taken through the hole in the roof of the tunnel. And, you'll even be brought right into the city centre to see the Palladian Pulteney bridge and Bath Abbey.
