Frequently Asked Questions

How can I enter the 2019 Bath Half ?

Discounted Early Bird Entries for the 2019 Bath Half will be opening on Tuesday 3rd April.


Should I return my timing chip ?

Yes please.  Our timing chips are reusable, and can be used again and again.  Reusing chips helps keep down costs for future events.

Your timing chip was sent to you in a small pre-paid envelope, addressed to our contractor SportSystems. Simply drop this in the post and it will make its way back to us.  That would be really appreciated.

If you’ve already opened your chip envelope then please pop it into a fresh envelope with a stamp and post to:

Bath Half Marathon
Running High Events Ltd
PO Box 3315

Thanks so much.

Will my entry fee be refunded ?

We will refund entry fees for all registered half marathon and Family Fun Run Entrants, following cancellation of this year’s race, in accordance with our Terms & Conditions of Entry.

When will I receive my refund?

We are currently working with our registration team to build an automated process to allow us to credit your entry fee back to the card you used to pay for your entry.  We anticipate refunds will clear entrants accounts on or before 20th April.

Can I donate my refund to charity ?

Yes. Following lots of  requests we have set up an on-line form for runners wishing to donate their entry fee from the 2018 Bath Half Marathon and/or Family Fun Run to the Bath Half Marathon Fund (managed by Quartet Community Foundation) to support the work of smaller local charities and voluntary groups within Bath & North East Somerset CLICK HERE TO DONATE

Thanks  for your generosity and support.

I’ve raised money for charity. What now happens to my fundraising?

We understand that many of our runners were taking on the challenge of the Bath Half to fundraise for a cause close to them. Hopefully your donors will be happy to honour their donation, in view of the circumstance and in recognition of the training you’ve done to prepare for the race.  But doors wishing to obtain a refund of their donation should contact your charity as soon as possible and they would authorise this with the online payment platform. If you used JustGiving please see their advice here

I bought my entry with a card which is now invalid, or I’ve since changed my bank. How will I be refunded?

Many banks and card providers have processes in place to automatically transfer refunds to customers’ replacement cards.

We will contact customers whose refund request cannot be processed through the automated process, and make arrangements for alternative method of payment to your new account.

Can I defer my entry to the 2019 Bath Half Marathon ?

No, we’re trying to keep this as simple as possible and we can’t offer deferrals to next year’s race at this stage.  But we will announce when the 2019 Bath Half Marathon is open for booking soon.

I got my entry through a race charity. Do I get a refund ?

If you paid a registration fee to your charity, please contact your charity to discuss your options.

If you paid your entry fee to us, as a Bronze Bond charity entrant, we will refund your entry fee.

I had a Best For Age or Sub 90 entry. Will this be honoured for the 2019 Bath Half Marathon ?

Best for Age and Sub 90 applications take into account times achieved in the 12 months preceding the application. This cannot be carried forward, and new evidence will need to be shown to qualify for these entries for the 2019 Bath Half Marathon.
