Family Fun Run
ENTRIES TO THE 2019 FAMILY FUN RUN – NOW CLOSED
The Family Fun Run is open to entrants of ALL AGES AND ABILITIES. It starts and finishes under the Half Marathon gantry in Great Pulteney Street, after the start of the half marathon. There is a free t-shirt for every entrant plus a medal and goody bag to all finishers
You will be starting and finishing under the official Bath Half gantry in Great Pulteney Street. The Family Fun Run course itself is approximately 3/4 mile long and completely traffic-free. You will run the first section of the half marathon course down Pulteney Road as far as North Parade Road, before turning back and running back again! Remember to keep aware of other runners and pace yourself, but above all have fun!
Find a map of the course here.
On the Day
On race day Family Fun Run entrants are asked to assemble at the end of Edward Street next to the barriers before the main half marathon start at 11.00am (you’ll be going through the Turnstile Gate out of the Runners Village – for a map of the Runners Village, including the Family Fun Run assembly point, click here). You’ll be able to watch the Half Marathon start from here before being walked to the Family Fun Run start by marshals.
Remember that Family Fun Run children under the age of 11 years must be accompanied by a responsible paying adult. Parents of unaccompanied older children must ensure their children are accompanied to the start area and MEET AT THE FAMILY FUN RUN EXIT IN THE RUNNERS VILLAGE. Please allow plenty of time to make your way round to the Family Fun Run Exit, remembering that the roadway in Great Pulteney Street is closed to pedestrians.
Bottled water will be provided after the finish, plus a free medal and goody bag to all finishers.
All Family Fun Runners will be chip timed and your results will be published on the race website by the end of race day. As this is a fun run, no prizes will be given, but all finishers will receive a finisher’s medal and goody bag.
