Conquer the Cotswolds and take on the Race to the Tower with this unrelentingly challenging double marathon. Sign up now and raise funds for Scotty's Little Soldiers, the charity for bereaved military children.

Sign up now and head to the Cotswolds in June for the 52 mile double marathon Race to the Tower challenge. If you love your hills and stunning views, this one is for you! You will be faced with an array of epic inclines and descents which take you up, and down; some of the best scenery Britain has to offer.

From quaint idyllic villages to medieval burial grounds, the Cotswold Way will take you all the way to the foot of the magnificent Broadway Tower. The highlights are endless, rich with 13th Century ruins and modern day film locations. The yellow, Jurassic Cotswold stone will pave the way, as you pass castles and the famous Cooper’s Hill en route.

This is a challenge inclusive of all ages, experience, and fitness levels. Whether you’re a seasoned runner, patient plodder or weekend walker – choose to camp over the weekend or take on the full distance in one go. From sign up to the finish line, the Threshold team will support you every step of the way along this incredible journey! With a completion rate of over 90% this is the perfect 1st ultra.

Race to the Tower. Unrelentingly beautiful. Unforgettably challenging.
