APPLYING FOR A GRANT FROM THE BATH HALF MARATHON FUND

Grants for the 2017 Bath Half Marathon Fund have now been awarded – for details see below

In 2018 the Bath Half Marathon Fund will be supporting the Action Against Child Poverty Campaign

THE BATH HALF MARATHON FUND

The Bath Half Marathon Fund was established in 2003 to distribute grants to smaller local charities and voluntary groups within Bath and North East Somerset using funds generated from optional donations generously made by runners at point of entry to each year’s race. The simple expedient of adding a box for optional donations on our entry forms has touched runners’ imaginations and generated significant funds for local good causes

Runners’ donations are distributed via the Quartet Community Foundation through grants for sports, active lifestyle and play-based projects targeting disadvantage or rural isolation within the Bath and North East Somerset area
