I started at the Penn Hill Trig Point and ran a clockwise route, back to Penn Hill.  I was supported by Ben Psaila for the first 20km, who ran alongside me and another friend, Mike Reid, who we met at points along the way and handed us water.  I ran up to the Trig Point at Bathampton alone and met Ben and Mike again on the south side of Bath University, with Mike accompanying me on a bike and Ben supporting us by car. 

It has already been noted that the Trig point at Widcome has been removed.  In order to honour this Trig point, I ran along the path to the nearest accessible point to where this Trig point used to be and climbed into the field and pointed towards where it would have stood. As there do not appear to be any rights of way to the exact point where the Trig point stood, I could not get closer than this.

The final Trig Point at Newton St Loe proved particularly challenging to find, hidden in the undergrowth behind a hedge.  I would recommend any person attempting this route in future either recces this point in advance or is very good at map reading!!!

I complete the route by touching Penn Hill trig point, my starting point, 3hr 51min and 13 seconds earlier.
