Two Tun­nels Half Marathon

Runner's World (UK) - - Race -

We love the idea of this event. It’s a race that’s run four times a year and the next edi­tion is in July. It’s 13.1 miles through the Bath coun­try­side, but also fea­tures tun­nel sec­tions that com­prise, say the or­gan­is­ers, the long­est un­der­ground sec­tion of any race in the UK. The tun­nels were part of the Som­er­set & Dorset Rail­way line, which closed in 1966. The Devon­shire one is 408m long and the sec­ond, Combe Down Tun­nel, mea­sures 1,672m. Both are per­fect for some sub­ter­ranean over­tak­ing. They’re well lit, so tun­nel vi­sion will not be an ad­van­tage. Bath, Avon, July 9, rel­ishrun­ningraces.com
