Cotswold Way Challenge

‘We raised £3,280. It was tough but incredible. We’d recommend it to anyone.’
Nicola Schoonderwoerd, who took on the Cotswold Way Challenge with three friends

The magical Cotswold Way provides a stunning setting for a testing challenge - with some fantastic views en route and tough hills in between! Tackle all this whilst supporting Amnesty International UK’s work protecting human rights the world over!

It's a Saturday morning start in historic Bath, with up to 100km of footpaths and trails to get to the Cheltenham finish line. Whether you're a keen walker and new to endurance events, or a seasoned hiker up for a new adventure - with half and quarter distance options also - there's a Challenge here for everyone. You'll get full support & hospitality all the way to your finish line - where an amazing sense of achievement & celebration awaits.
