*Cancelled due to COVID-19*

Due to the current situation there will be no Half Marathon this year but the organisers are still currently continuing with plans to hold the 10k.

Run for us! We’d love you to be part of our team for the Severn Bridge Half Marathon!

Take part in the Severn Bridge Half Marathon for The Forever Friends Appeal and help make a real difference to patients and their families at the Royal United Hospitals Bath.

A unique opportunity to run across the bridge on the closed M48 main carriageway! The ‘old’ Severn Bridge is an iconic landmark and a truly unique and exhilarating place to run – open to the elements on all sides and with fantastic views, meaning you will be running between sea and sky.

Do something special today and choose to support our major campaigns, Special Appeals or any other area in the hospital that is close to your heart.

Join our Severn Bridge Half team today!

The event starts on the Western (Chepstow) end of the Severn Bridge on the motorway itself and after crossing the bridge and back finishes in the event HQ below J2 of the M48, right next to the car park. The event HQ is on a pleasant grassy area overlooking the bridge enabling us to erect all the marquees needed for registration, changing, baggage etc.

The route suits both first timers and experienced club runners – it provides something a bit different from your average ‘run-of-the-mill’ city half marathon: stunning views, sea air, scenic country lanes and villages and the opportunity to participate in a unique running event on a closed motorway and across the iconic Severn Bridge.
