Walks around Bath and campus

Enjoy some fresh air, exercise and the beautiful Bath landscape this winter thanks to two ‘snowman walks’ from our University of Bath triathlon team.

Coaches for the British Triathlon and BUCS students squads used the Garmin GPS fitness app to create two seasonal walks that are shaped like a snowman when viewed on a map and take in spectacular views of our home city.

Both are easy to follow using a smartphone and you don’t need the Garmin app, just open the links below using your browser.

The first, an 8.4km walk, takes in landmarks around the city centre to the north of the River Avon and the hills around Bear Flat to the south.

Here’s the route: https://connect.garmin.com/modern/course/46872529

For those feeling more energetic, the second 16km walk also includes Odd Down, Combe Down and Prior Park.
