Not running in a Bath or running a bath. The latter I will be doing later.

Anyone from Bath?

Know a hilly run 13-15 miles?

Looking at Cotswold way out and Limestone link return. Any good - better to reverse the route?

Any better routes?

Will be there tomorrow (weds) so short notice I know but only decided on trip today.

More importantly - where should I eat after.

BM - how about this, the course of the Bath hilly half. I've not run it myself so can't vouch for it but if it does what it says on the tin. Try Martini restarant in George Street afterwards or Ask Restaurant in Broad Street.

I've run this route several times, and have entered the race too. It's fun, believe me. And if it's wet then it's gonna be a mud fest...

I've done Bath Half (not the Hilly Half as above) a couple of times and it's DULL as routes go.  The only other running I have done there has comprised of running the Bristol/Bath cycle path from Bath to Bristol and it's not lumpy so that's no good.  Will have to leave route mapping to the other guys.

For food, I have eaten at both the below:

The firehouse rotisserie is a nice place to eat, I've had pizza there a couple of times as well as salad.  Never faulted it.

Also, the Riverside Cafe is delicious but it's not an evening venue.  I would recommend this venue more, but not sure if it's appropriate for your needs.

Will see if I can think of anything else before Weds.

Also, there is a branch of Duo in Bath, a popular store with runners from this site as they do calf fitting boots.  (Though may not have much in stock now as out of season.)

The riverside cafe is brilliant - but wasn't the OP coming to Bath in March?

Oh feck.

I missed that piece of crucial information.

See if you can get the route description of the shorter routes of this - I only have the 26.5 mile route.

Reasonably hilly and across country - minimal tarmac involved!

Google the Cotswold Way Relay BM - lots of off-road routes in that neck of the woods.

You could always run and see me in Frome and get the train back
