In past years the sight of 15,000 runners setting off down Great Pulteney Street, and then returning to the same spot, 13.1 miles later, has never failed to take our breath away.

This vast boulevard is lined with spectators, sending you off, and welcoming you back, with so much encouragement. Whatever the weather on race day, the spectators arrive in their thousands to show their support.

The support continues around the whole course. We estimate that around 30,000 people line the streets of Bath on race day, so you’ll never find a quiet stretch along the route.

The annual ‘Battle of the Bands’, which sees local bands playing in seven locations along the course route, is always a massive hit with our runners. They provide an eclectic mix of musical styles, ensuring there is something for all our runners, just at the point when they need a boost.
