The Cotswold Running Festival, the new format for the Cotswold 24 Hr Race!

It’s a weekend crammed with running events, speakers, entertainment and more.  You can choose from:

We will have a 12 and 24 Hour Race, both running through the night.  These are individual or team relay races held at the stunning Bathurst Estate on the outskirts of Cirencester in Gloucestershire. These are run over an off-road 9km mixed course including forest trails, open parkland and tarmac paths.  If you enter as a team, only one member of your team is allowed on the course at any one time, and everybody in your team must complete one whole lap. At the end of the 12 or 24 hours, the team in each category who has completed most laps, wins. YOU DON’T HAVE TO RUN 100 MILES!  For the first time in 2019 we will also have an 9km Race (one lap of the relay course), a 5km Race, and a 1km Kids Race for ages 5 – 17 (categorised by age group).
