Event details

  • Surface: Road, footpath and towpath
  • Route: 1 lap partially retraced
  • Setting: City centre taking in tourist attractions and also canal towpath
  • Profile: Predominantly flat
  • Wheelchair accessible: We are very sorry but due to the nature of the course and in particular narrow stretches along the canal towpath and positioning of bollards we have concluded that the course isn’t wheelchair accessible.
  • Water stations: Yes, at 3K and 7K

  • Changing: No
  • Toilets: Yes
  • Bag storage: Yes, supervised
  • Parking: Several nearby public car parks
  • Notes: The aim of the route is to showcase Gloucester so it passes the Cathedral, through the Docks and Gloucester Quays and there is a run along the canal towpath.  Given the intention of taking in the sites it does twist in the odd place, but is still a fast course.  The event is very much a community event re-established by Davies and Partners Solicitors following the decision of commercial organisers not to continue with it.  Any surplus will be given to Gloucester charities.

Running on Canal Towpaths

  • Single file running on towpath unless overtaking
  • All participants should be courteous towards other towpath users
  • All participants should be aware of Weils disease in case a runner enters the water. (Weils disease is a type of bacterial infection spread by animals. In 90% of cases, Weils only causes mild flu-like symptoms, such as headache, chills and muscle pain. However, in some cases the infection is more severe and can cause problems, including organ failure and internal bleeding. The common mild symptoms mean that most infections are hard to diagnose but if you do fall into the water and you later feel unwell, you are advised to see a doctor.)
