Considered one of the top sightseeing routes in the UK, the “Cotswold Way” is a 100 mile National Trail through the countryside from Bath northwest to Chipping Camden. Following a scenic ridgeline, there are some steep climbs, but most of the route is gently rolling on a variety of surfaces. The track is mostly dirt, but some sections through villages follow paved and stone streets. Most runners who want to take on a reasonable chunk of the Cotswold Way from the city can start from Bath Abbey and can follow the trail north to Kelston Round Hill for a round trip of about 12 km.
