Bath Half 2016 Entrants' Newsletter - August 2015
Hello and welcome to the first of our regular newsletters to registered entrants in the 2016 Vitality Bath Half.
These newsletters will contain news and information about race day as well as training tips, fundraising advice and offers and competitions from our retail partners.
We’d like to say a big thank you for signing up to run with us on 13 March 2016. The Vitality Bath Half has sold out every year for the last 16 years and with a record number of places reserved for charity we anticipate that entries for next year’s race will sell out earlier than normal. Please do let friends, family and colleagues know that we recommend they enter as soon as possible if they plan to join you on the start line next Spring.
We’re really pleased to announce that Macmillan Cancer Support will be our Lead Race Charity in 2016. Every year we can’t quite believe how much our dedicated runners raise for charity and we know you will do us proud again in 2016. You can find out more about Macmillan and our other race charities on our website.
With just over eight months to go until race day we’d like to wish you well with your Bath Half training. We’ll be back in touch after the summer, with some training plans for you to get your teeth (or legs?!) into.
All the best
Race Director, Vitality BATHALF
