Event Update!

The organisers of the Cotswold Way Ultra have unfortunately confirmed the event will be cancelled due to the current Coronavirus situation. We will be in contact with all of our charity place participants over the coming weeks with more information and next steps.

The Challenge

Over 2,000 adventurers will take on the historic path from Bath to Cheltenham. It starts by the magnificent Royal Crescent, and then the famous rolling hills with fantastic views towards the Severn Estuary, and idyllic villages nestling in between on an epic 100km journey - with full support and great hospitality all the way to the finish line. It will be rewarding, fun, and absolutely achievable with a little determination!
