NEW for 2018, St Richard’s Hospice has added the “Bath Half” (as it’s affectionately known), to their running calendar and are encouraging supporters to take part.
This popular event is one of the longest established and most popular city centre road events in the UK and one of the leading warm up races for the London Marathon. It is also the largest charity fundraising event in the South West region, raising over £2.2 million for charity in 2016 alone. The course itself is fast and flat making it suitable for all abilities – for beginners whose key objective is to complete the course, to more regular long-distance event runners, looking to beat their personal best time. It covers a two lap 13.1 mile (21.1km) traffic-free course straddling both sides of the River Avon.
The race starts and finishes in Great Pulteney Street, in the heart of the World Heritage City of Bath.
Cost: £45 charity entry fee PLUS pledge to raise a minimum £175 in sponsorship
Unfortunately this event is now SOLD OUT!
