If you love a challenge and want to do something special next year – run for us in the Bath Half 2019 and be part of our 20th anniversary celebrations.

We have places available in one of the most popular half marathons held in the UK. This is a fast and flat half marathon, and there’s two laps on both sides of the River Avon, starting and finishing in Great Pulteney Street, right in the heart of the World Heritage City of Bath.

It takes place on Sunday 17 March and we’re looking for people to join our team.

We have a limited number of places available and with general places now sold out, why not join us and support your local hospital?

Maddy Jones, Senior Events Fundraiser said:

“If you run for us, The Forever Friends Appeal, your sponsorship pledge will go towards helping make a real difference to patients and their families at the Royal United Hospitals Bath.

“Our charity places cost £35 and we ask each participant to raise a minimum of £175.

“You can choose to donate towards one of our major campaigns, appeals or an area in the hospital that may be close to your heart. Alternatively, your sponsorship will go towards the areas that will benefit patients the most.”

Runner, Simon Lingard, Project Manager said:

“I have joined The Forever Friends Appeal team as I see the difference that donations make and the benefits that fundraising has on transforming our hospital to provide the highest quality care for our patients.

“Next year, will be my fifth time in seven years. It’s a personal challenge to try and beat my personal best year on year, which doesn’t always work! But, I also enjoy the sense of ‘team’ in the run-up (pun intended) to the half-marathon, they are really supportive, especially on the day itself.”
