Destination race inspiration: Read all about our visit to beautiful Cortina to experience the Lavaredo Ultra Trail weekend, a trail running festival in the heart of the Dolomites, Italy. How to get there, what to take, and what running the LUT is really like.
In 2015 we both ran our second marathon; it happened to be the extremely beautiful yet very challenging Trail Marathon Wales sponsored by Salomon. We chose this race because we had heard so much about how beautiful the course was. We hadn't visited Snowdonia before, and we hadn't run a Marathon in the UK before. It just made sense 🙂
The Bath two tunnels races are run by Relish Running, whose races I have been enjoying throughout the summer (The Cheddar Gorge half and Bath hilly half marathon being two of them), so I knew this would be a fun event.
The Cheddar Gorge events, in particular the half and full marathons, are billed as some of the toughest of their kind in the UK, and are hosted in the spectacular setting of the huge gorge and National Trust land.
