It’s that time of year when many people will be thinking about making changes in the form of a New Year’s resolution.

If you are thinking about committing to a healthy 2019 or completing a challenge for the first time, we are here for you!

No matter how many mince pies, pigs in blankets or glasses of sherry you've had over the Christmas holiday, we have the calorie-burning activities to help make 2019 your healthiest yet!

This is the perfect time to sign up to walk, run or cycle in one of our fundraisers. In 2019 there will be the chance to support our charity at your own pace!

On February 23 the Bath Rugby Walk takes place. Starting at Dorothy House and ending at the Rec, where entrants will be rewarded with a pint and a pie before watching Wales V England in the Six Nations together, the walk raises vital funds for both Bath Rugby Foundation and Dorothy House. Formerly the Bath Men’s Walk, the event is now open to all men, women and children aged 12+.

On March 17 the pace increases slightly as we seek to enter our largest ever team into the Bath Half Marathon. We are hoping to see the streets flooded with runners wearing the Blue, Black and White of your favourite rugby team. If you are reading this and thinking that you couldn’t complete the race we will provide all the help you need in terms of training support over the next few months – we’ll get you to that finish line!

And in October our two-wheeled team will be heading abroad once again! After conquering the hills of Tuscany in 2018, 2019 will see our cyclists take on Ride Mallorca – three days of cycling on the island, which has in recent years become famous for providing an amazing experience.

Again, no matter what your experience is on a bike, this will be a very enjoyable trip. Our cycling guru, David Trick, will ensure this is a trip for all abilities and there will be plenty of support before we fly off.

Not only will taking part in any of these events help you enjoy all the health benefits that come with a healthy body and the positive feelings that accompany a personal achievement there’s the added bonus that you will be directly contributing to changing the lives of vulnerable young people in and around this city.
