** Collect the interlocking medals across the series – the more races you do the bigger the medal! ** Custom medal and LIVE results for all finishers. ** Choose from 2 routes – Return Ticket; The ‘Return Ticket’ is a 2 lap out and back half marathon course within the Two Tunnels and surrounding countryside. It is a fast and flat course with a total of 8km+ underground! Definitely a PB potential course! – Hilly Ticket; The Hilly Ticket goes out through the Two Tunnels and then takes in a 10km loop around the surrounding countryside, taking in a few more hills and some intersting historical sites on country trails. A truly special race that not only takes in many of Bath’s beautiful attractions but also has the longest underground sections of any running race in the UK! Cutting right under the city of Bath, the two tunnels offer a truly unique running experience. The Somerset & Dorset Railway closed in 1966 and until April 2013 the tunnels have been sealed and inaccessible. Thanks to the hard work and dedication of the Two Tunnels Group and Sustrans over 7 years, the two tunnels now have a new lease of life as a shared use path. The first tunnel; The Devonshire Tunnel is 408m long and the second Combe Down Tunnel is 1672m long. Both tunnels are well lit and well surfaced, and have recently been converted into a shared use path for the enjoyments of runners, walkers and cyclists looking to make the most of the city whilst remaining a flatter ground. The Two Tunnels ‘Return Ticket’ Half Marathon is a UK Athletics certified accurately measured course, reference number 236/2201b Awards/mementos: Medal Spot prizes Winners’ prizes Venue facilities: Toilets Refreshments Supervised bag storage
