Entries to the 2018 Corporate Challenge for business teams are now OPEN
For details of entry please see our Corporate Challenge Entries webpage
The Bath Half Corporate Challenge is a unique team building and fundraising opportunity for businesses and guests competing at one of the most popular city centre road races in the UK, and the largest single day charity fundraising event in the South West, helping build TEAMWORK across departments, COMPETITION between businesses, and FITNESS within the workplace, whilst raising SERIOUS MONEY for charity.
The Bath Half sells out each year within weeks of release of entries. 500 places in the half marathon are specifically reserved for entrants representing businesses teams competing for the coveted Bath Half Corporate Challenge Mens’ and Women’s Team trophies. Mixed teams are also welcome.
This year we are introducing a couple of changes to the Corporate Challenge :
- Businesses can now pre-purchase their team entries (minimum of 5 race entries) and have until 26th December to register their team members.
- Corporate Challenge entrants are no longer required to fundraise for charity, but we are delighted that so many of you choose to do so, and we’d be grateful if you could provide us with details of your fundraising after the event.
Guest runners are welcomed – invite your clients, suppliers, friends and family. The event is ideal for inter-branch or inter-departmental challenges – see how head office really matches up against the local branch, Human Resources against IT, or management vs staff, and of course businesses are positively encouraged to challenge your competitors to square up on the start line!
Race day hospitality packages are also available for runners and spectators, plus sponsorship opportunities at the event for business partners. Presenting a unique networking experience, breaking down normal ‘rules of engagement’ and providing an opportunity to engage face to face with 15,000 participants and 30,000 spectators at this spectacular community event.
