The Bath Half Marathon - or the 'Bath Half' as it is affectionately known, is one of the longest established and most popular city centre road events in the UK. It is also the largest charity fundraising event in the South West region, raising over £1.5 million for charity last year alone. The course itself 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 Pulteney Street, in the heart of the World Heritage City of Bath
You don't have to raise money for charity, but we're delighted that most of you chose to do so. If you have not already chosen a charity, why not run for our Lead Charity Coppafeel, or one of our other official race charities ?
We are very proud of the event's reputation for its wonderful atmosphere, fast flat course and of course fantastic location. In fact, The Daily Telegraph voted The Bath Half '3rd Best Running Event' in their Top 10 Big Runs and Athletics Weekly voted the event 'The Fastest Spring Half Marathon Course in the UK in 2010'
