Updated - Monday 4th April 20222

As you will know the Running High, Bath Half Marathon, which was due to take place on Sunday, May 29th, 2022, is now scheduled to take place on Sunday, October 16th, 2022. We were as disappointed as you to receive news of the fourth postponement and have looked at alternatives for all of you who have been training so hard and for such a long time.

Please see below five options open to you. Please can you let us know which option is best for you by 5pm on Friday, April 8th so we can make the necessary arrangements. Please email [email protected].

Option 1

“Bath Recreation is pleased to support charity partners in facilitating a charity event at Odd Down Sports Ground on Sunday, May 29th, 2022, which will provide an opportunity to raise much needed funds.”

We are excited to be part of the event on Sunday, May 29th, 2022, at Odd Down Sports Ground. This means you can complete your half marathon to fundraise for the Bath Rugby Foundation and not change your training plans. You will have access to all the same perks as if you were competing in the Bath Half itself.

This includes:

·         Pre and post-run massages

·         Showers

·         Refreshments

·         Secure bag storage

·         Bath Rugby Foundation cheerleaders

 The half marathon will be completed on the cycle track. There will be plenty of refreshments and room for supporters. There is parking nearby, and there will be plenty of entertainment as you complete the course of several loops of the track.

This is a great way for you to complete the half marathon that you have been training and fundraising so hard for and Bath Recreation are checking if this is an accredited distance for those wanting PBs.

Option 2

Take part in the rescheduled Bath Half on Sunday, October 16th, 2022, organised by Running High.

This includes:

· A longer training time for those who are new to running or looking to beat a PB

· Runner perks

· More runner events to help you get the best out of yourself

· More time to raise funds for Bath Rugby Foundation 

Option 3

Take part in the Sunday, May 29th, 2022, half marathon and in the Sunday, October 16th, 2022, Bath Half Marathon organised by Running High. This way you get to help support us twice at the cost of just one event, and of course with double the perks.

Option 4

Take part in a Virtual Bath Half instead of attending the race on Sunday, October 16th, 2022.

Runners can complete the half marathon distance on a course of their choice on or before Sunday, 16th October, 2022. Then upload proof of your run, and the organisers of the Bath Half, Running High, will post you an original BATHALF finishers medal and T-shirt.

Option 5

If none of the above options appeals and you can’t make the new date you can withdraw your place from the Sunday October 16th Bath Half, and we will do our best to fill it with another runner and we will refund your place (if booked through us).

We are keen to support you throughout your Bath Half Marathon journey and would like to thank you once again, from the bottom of our hearts, for running in support of Bath Rugby Foundation and the vital work it does with disadvantaged children and young people in our community. The difference you make by continuing to train and fundraise is life changing for the young people we work with. Proudly wearing your Blue, Black & White vest on training runs helps to build awareness of our work.

We are looking forward to finally welcoming you on Sunday May 29th, 2022 or on Sunday October 16th and in the meantime, working with you to make every step of the journey to race day as fun and rewarding as possible.

Please keep us posted on your training runs and plans so that we can share your incredible achievements across all our social media platforms.
