Almost 100 runners have already signed up to raise vital funds for Bath Rugby Foundation by taking part in the Bath Half Marathon.

In November the charity will be celebrating its 15th birthday, and as part of our year-long birthday party we’re inviting you to join us to make sure the 2019 Bath Half Marathon is BRF’s biggest and best yet!

We want more runners than we’ve ever had to help us celebrate this landmark year. And as a thank you to all of you we will be offering even more support to our ‘team’ from now until race day.

The Bath Half Marathon raises vital funds for us to continue our work with vulnerable children and young people in our community. Over the years it has become a major fundraiser for our charity.

Sadly, the Beast from the East’s heavy snowfall meant that this year’s event was cancelled and, while many of our runners took part in alternative races, we are determined to make next year’s race, on Sunday, March 17, the best one yet.

All BRF runners will receive

  1. A limited-edition 15th Birthday Bath Rugby Foundation running vest
  2. Free massage clinics
  3. Free running clinics
  4. Hot showers in the Bath Rugby players’ changing rooms
  5. Pre-race massage
  6. Post-race massage
  7. Pre-race hydration and snacks
  8. Post-race food and drink
  9. 15th Birthday goody bags
  10. Secure bag storage throughout the day
  11. The Bath Half’s most raucous cheering teams
  12. Training and nutrition plan and tips on how to perform at your best

This year we are asking runners to help us cover the charity’s race costs by paying a £45 entrance fee and we are also asking runners to raise £250 in sponsorship. All the money raised will go towards our work with vulnerable children and young people in Bath. We want to empower as many youngsters as possible and every pound raised will have a positive impact.

We hope to sign up as many people as possible, so we can begin to support your training and fundraising from now until the big day.
