Every year Julian House holds its popular Circuit of Bath Walk around the outskirts of Bath, and this year it takes place on Sunday 25 September.
The event involves walking part, or all, of a spectacular circular route around the edge of the city. The route takes in stunning scenery and wonderful views across Bath, including Upper Swainswick, Solsbury Hill, Bathampton, Monkton Combe, Southstoke and Englishcombe.
The terrain is a mix of well-used paths and public right of way, limited sections of roadway, flat ground and, of course, hills – this is Bath!
Although the whole route is 20 miles, participants can choose to do anything between 2-20 miles, thanks to a unique shuttle bus service that runs between the 5 checkpoints, making it a very family friendly event. Part of the route is buggy friendly and dogs (on leads) are welcome on the entire route. Everybody who completes the whole 20 mile route is rewarded with a special medal.
There are 5 checkpoints to start from and participants can walk in either a clockwise or anti-clockwise direction.
The event is free to enter and participants are asked to raise sponsorship which will help Julian House in Bath and Wiltshire to develop its projects supporting homeless and excluded individuals.
