Stunning Location

Cotswold Ekiden

Sudeley Castle


3rd September

Winchcombe, GL54 5JD

Route Description

The route of the Cotswold Ekiden winds it's way through grounds of Sudeley Castle and although having a reasonably flat profile the different surfaces under foot and beautiful views of the Cotswolds make this one the most interesting routes you will run this year. Throw in the relay aspect and this is a fun and rewarding way to spend a day with your friends.


Bristol Taiko Drummers

We are happy to announce that Bristol Taiko will be supporting the Cotswold Ekiden by providing a unique performance during the race build up and the race itself. You can see them in action in the video here.

interesting races in beautiful places

R&R Pursuits was set up in 2016 after lifelong friends Rich and Rob finally came up with an idea to provide something different in the UK running race calendar. Rich's love of running and Rob's love of Japan meant that organising Ekiden events was always going to be the perfect idea.
