Route

Starting from a well known city-centre location with great transport links, the marathon will follow a traffic-free route to head out of the city and pick up well established trails.

The terrain will be challenging in places but stopping to enjoy the views is a must.

Signage and marshalls will be positioned throughout, as will Aid Stations.

The event finishes in the incredible and historic city of Bath, just a short train journey back to Bristol.

Further route details and a first draft map will be provided soon.

Cities

Start in Bristol, where you can enjoy an abundance of fantastic restaurants and bars, great hotels, historic houses and museums full of intrigue, cutting-edge art galleries and of course the harbour.

Stay here before your Trail Escape and enjoy all it has to offer.

Finishing your marathon in Bath means you can either hop on the train back to Bristol, or plan another amazing stop over in this stunning and historic city. Visit the spa, the famous Royal Crescent, and soak up the beautiful architecture.

Trails

The route will take runners from Bristol city centre into the beautiful rolling hills of North and North-East Somerset, before crossing the Avon and heading up into the second AONB of your journey, The Cotswolds.

Participants will enjoy stunning views over the city as well as the start of the Mendips.

The final leg of the route will provide you with breathtaking views back over to Bristol before the descent into the UNESCO World Heritage City of Bath.

How it works

CITY START & FINISH

CITY START & FINISH

Trail Escape will start in Bristol, heading out on traffic-free routes to the surrounding countryside and finish in Bath. Escape city streets and explore the vast expanse of rolling hills, fields, lakes and woodland beyond. Immerse yourself in stunning landscapes you might never find alone. Enjoy the rare opportunity to take part in a trail event that offers city convenience! Book a place to stay, celebrate with friends & family, and take in all that the city has to see & do.

RUN OR HIKE/WALK A TRAIL MARATHON

RUN OR HIKE/WALK A TRAIL MARATHON

The main event at Trail Escape will be a marathon, which you will be able to sign up for as a run or walk / hike. The routes will suit all levels of runners and experienced walkers. We would recommend you can walk for at least seven hours non stop before the event. If you sign up to run, don’t worry if you need to walk some of the way - that’s encouraged so you can properly take in the beauty of where you are running! The climbing, descending and overall terrain will be challenging in places, but we assure you that slowing down to take in everything that is Trail Escape is more than acceptable.

FULLY SUPPORTED ROUTE

FULLY SUPPORTED ROUTE

Explore trails outside of the city with peace of mind. All of the events will be fully supported with way-finding and marshals just like a traditional road marathon. Along the way, there will be Aid Stations in place with fuel and hydration to help you along the way. Cheer points and music will enhance the experience that is Trail Escape. We are working with local authorities to create traffic free routes from each city, using green corridors to access the beautiful British countryside.

EVENT VILLAGE

EVENT VILLAGE

At all Trail Escapes there will be an Event Village at the start and finish offering food, drink, and a place for family and friends to enjoy the event whilst you are running. Friends & family will be able to see you off at the start, and meet you here after your challenge to celebrate with you. If a finish location is different to the start location (as it will be at this event), we will transport your kit from start to finish.

TIMING & MEDALS

TIMING & MEDALS

This will be a timed event but not necessarily a race. While there will be categories for fastest finishers (and KOM / QOM challenges on the way), your goal is to enjoy running or walking on these incredible routes. Stopping to enjoy the views is strongly encouraged. Forget the pressure of chasing PBs or worrying about split times. Trail Escape is about enjoying the environment we are taking you through on your way to getting that medal for finishing a Trail Escape marathon.
