General entries, priced £55, are now available for next year’s Bath Half which will take place on Sunday 16 March 2025. You can enter via Let’s Do This here.

The Bath Half, first held in 1982, is one of the UK’s most prestigious half marathons, the largest sporting and community event in Bath and the largest charity fundraising event in the south-west. The 2024 edition takes place on Sunday 17 March.

Andrew and Mel Taylor, founders of Running High Events Ltd, who have organised the event for the past 25 years, step down after this year and London Marathon Events will take over for the 2025 event.

Hugh Brasher, Event Director for London Marathon Events who is in Bath today, said: “The Bath Half started less than 12 months after the first London Marathon and is a much-loved event. We are excited to be taking over from Andrew and Mel and we will be working with local groups, charities and the Council to make the event bigger and better than ever. We’re delighted to offer everyone this special £50 Early Bird entry for 2025 and are certain that the event will sell out in record time.”

Early Bird entries available only for a limited time.
