Join #TeamARUK for the Race to the Tower 2022. The 100km route will truly challenge you as you attempt to conquer the stunning climbs of the Cotswold Way.

Setting off alongside your fellow trekkers, you will experience the testing climbs and challenging ascents of The Cotswolds. When you’re rewarded at the top with breath-taking views and stunning scenery, we can assure you there is no climb not worth the effort along this route! From Devil’s Chimney to Hailes Abbey, your journey promises to be rich in both history and incredible scenery. Trekking the peaks and troughs of the Cotswold Way is a sizeable challenge, but there is no greater sight than seeing Broadway Tower looming in the horizon as you make your way up the final climb to the finish line.

This is a tough but hugely rewarding challenge and you will be taking it on with hundreds of others like-minded trekkers. Whether you are a seasoned runner, patient plodder or weekend walker, with the option to cover the 100km without stopping or the option to camp on the Saturday night, this challenge can be catered to you!
