Q – Am I In ?

A – You can check your race entry using ‘MY REGISTRATION

Q – Are there any half marathon entries available?

A – Our general public places sold out in October, Corporate Challenge and VIP entries are also sold out, and charity entries are now closed.

We don’t keep a waiting list, and we don’t re-allocate cancelled entries.

Q – Are there any Family Fun Run entries available?

A – Family Fun Run are all sold out.

Q – Is there a cut off time to complete the half marathon ?

A – Half marathon entrants need to be able to complete the 13 mile course within 4 hours.  Slower runners taking between 3:45 and 4:00 hours will be asked to run on the pavements in the latter stages of the race on their second lap as sections of road are reopened to traffic, but marshals, drink stations and medical teams will remain in post until the last runner has passed.

Runners who arrive at the halfway point after 2 hours will be directed straight to the finish, and not allowed to continue on the second lap.

Q – How do I cancel my entry?

A – Cancellation requests must be made using one of our 2 online cancellation forms :

To cancel a general public half marathon entry or Family Fun Run entry – CLICK HERE

To cancel a reserved charity entry – CLICK HERE

The deadline for deferrals and refunds expired on 26th December, see CANCELLATIONS & REFUNDS

Q – When will I receive my race pack?

A – Your race pack includes your timing chip, your race number and a handy pocket sized Race Day Guide. Our Guide is also available to view and download from the race website – CLICK HERE to download our Race Day Guide.

Family Fun Run entrants will also be posted a free Bath Half Marathon Fund T-shirt to wear on race day.

Race packs for the majority of half marathon entrants who registered with us before 26th December should arrive on or before 2nd February, although some were withheld to our second mailing. Race packs for remaining half marathon entrants, and fun run entrants should arrive on or before 16th February.

– What are the arrangements for sending race packs to overseas entrants?

A – We do not post out race packs to overseas entrants, unless they are able to provide a mailing address in the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. Overseas entrants who do not provide a UK mailing address will be sent an email including the Race Day Guide, and instructions on how to collect their race packs from the Information Tent in the Runners Village between 10am-4pm on Saturday 3rd March, or between 8am-11am on race day.

Q – What do I do if my race pack hasn’t arrived?

A – If your race pack has not arrived by 19th February please contact us to request a SUBSTITUTE RACE PACK

If you’ve moved house without notifying us you’ll either need to arrange for your post to be redirected or collected from your old address, or alternatively you’ll need to order and pay for a REPLACEMENT RACE PACK – at a cost of £10 (increasing to £15 on Thursday 1st March).

If you contact us before 23rd February, we will post your race pack by first class mail. After this date, you’ll need to collect your pack from the Information Tent in the Runners Village between 10am-4pm on Saturday 3rd March, or between 8am-11am on race day.

Q – My race pack has arrived. Is there anything I need to do?

A – We ask all entrants to please check the name and race number printed on your race pack envelope against the race number and the envelope containing your timing chip inside the pack. If these are incorrect, or don’t match please contact the Bath Half office using the CONTACT US form on our website.

We get a handful of mismatched race packs each year. In these instances, we will ask you to return your race pack to us, and we’ll post out a substitute, free of charge.

Please read the race day guide carefully. It includes essential information about arrangements for race day.

Please take care handling your race pack, particularly to avoid damaging or losing the timing chip, or mixing them up with the contents of someone else’s race pack. Please store your race pack in a safe place – ideally in the original envelope with the printed entrant’s name.

Q – Why does my half marathon race number have the Alzheimers Society logo – I’m running for a different charity/not running for charity? 

A – For the last few years we have printed the logo of our lead race charity on all our half marathon race numbers.
