Run the Vitality Bath Half 2016 and support the RUH

Sign up to run the Bath Half Marathon and help make a difference at the RUH. The Forever Friends Appeal is the ‘Featured Appeal’ for the 2016 event, sign up today to secure a place.

The course

The Vitality Bath Half 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 Pultney Street, in the heart of the World Heritage City of Bath.

Running to accomplish a goal or completing the course in fancy dress? Whoever you are and whatever you do, you can help a cause that is close to the hearts of so many! What are you waiting for?

Our team sponsors

Big Ted would like to say a tremendous thank you to our 2016 Ted’s Team sponsors, local mail company, Velopost (formerly Docmail Local Post).
