APPLYING FOR A GRANT FROM THE BATH HALF MARATHON FUND

Application details for the 2017 Bath Half Marathon Fund grants will be published on this page in the summer 2017

THE BATH HALF MARATHON FUND

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