Great Western Air Ambulance Charity.

Run the Bath half marathon, save a life.

2018 see’s The Great Western Air Ambulance Charity celebrate its 10th birthday and what better way to celebrate than running a great race to raise money for our life-saving service.

We are the busiest air ambulance service in the South West, serving a population of 2.1 million. Last year alone we attended 1735 patients. 91 of these patients were in Bath, that’s nearly 2 a week! Our team of critical care paramedics and doctors are called to an average of 4 incidents a day, from emergency cesareans to roadside amputations they bring the skill and equipment of the emergency room out to where it is most needed.

By running the Bath Half, you aren’t just running 13.1 miles, you’re raising vital funds so that when someone’s life is hanging in the balance, we can be there and give them every possible chance of surviving.

We are a charity funded by donations from the public. We receive no day to day government or national lottery funding. We couldn’t keep flying without people like you and without the ongoing support of the people we serve.

Sign up to run and keep the service flying and we’ll support you every step of the way. Whether its tips for making the most of your fundraising or sharing advice on training you’ll be part of our ground crew and we’ll be there to help you reach the finish line and welcome you once you’ve crossed it with plentiful hugs from our mascot Charlie, the Critical Care Bear.

We’d really love for you to join our team and run to help save even more lives in the 2018 Bath Half Marathon. If you have any questions or would like to find out more information please get in touch with our fundraising team on 0303 4444 999 or email us at info@gwaac.com
