The route has previously tiptoed around the base of The Cotswold Way via Bath and Corsham, but today it deep dives into the Cotswold region, with Burford a recognised village highlight.

Cheltenham adds more Instagrammable backdrops as I run to the end of the day.

The Racecourse is a must. It is one of the great sporting arenas in England and indeed the world. Nearby Pittville Park is also a good looking visity where a drop of Pump Room water will help me to unveil the Spa town history here.

Time Permitting – we will try and see Winchcombe, Sudeley Castle and Hailes Abbey, all near the accommodation.

Fuel: The Cotwolds is awash with countrifeid celebrities so we will try and get hold of, and taste test some Pong Cheese from Blur’s Alex James.
