Relish Running Races is organising the inaugural 'Two Tunnels Railway' Races on Sunday 28th September 2014. The event is being organised after consultation with Monkton Combe Parish Council and with the full support of BANES Council, Sustrans and the Two Tunnels Group.

There is a marathon, half marathon, 10km, 5km and 500m race - all setting off from Bath and running on the Two Tunnels Greensway route. The marathon and half marathon will run through Monkton Combe and join the Kennet & Avon canal along the route of the National Cycle Network. 

There will be approximately 300 runners in total running through the Monkton Combe between 10:30 and 11:00. The 100 marathon runners will come through for their 2nd lap between 12:00 and 14:00. 

There will not be any road closures but there will be marshals out on the course to keep the runners to the side of the road. The support of any local residents would be welcome and  the runners would certainly appreciate a cheer as they go by.
