O2 Events, the Bath-based organiser of mass participation running events, are delighted to announce the launch of a brand new closed road, traffic-free marathon for the South West in 2015. Starting in the heart of Bristol and finishing in the historic City of Bath, the Bristol + Bath Marathon not only joins a select list of fully closed road marathons in the UK but will be amongst the first to be truly ‘City to City’.
The brand new event will take place on Sunday 25th October 2015, boasting a completely closed-road route throughout the entire 26.2 mile course. Runners will take in the sights of the vibrant City of Bristol, including the SS Great Britain and Queens’ Square as they make their way through the beautiful rolling countryside of South Gloucestershire on the journey to the UNESCO World Heritage City of Bath.
Jamie Warren, Head of Marketing and Commercial at GO2, said: “There are only a handful of closed road marathons in the UK and we are incredibly excited to be bringing something new to the rich local running scene in the South West of England. This ‘City to City’ event promises to be really unique and we are looking forward to the Bristol + Bath Marathon becoming a firm favourite in the running calendar, both locally and nationally.”
Taking place exactly six weeks after the Bristol Half Marathon, the Bristol + Bath Marathon is the perfect target to aim for if you’re already planning on progressing to the full marathon distance.
Further details of the Bristol + Bath Marathon will be announced in the New Year, including full route details.
