Vitality BATHALF 2015 Entrants' Newsletter
Hello and welcome to the first edition of our Vitality BATHALF 2015 Entrants’ newsletter.
All general public places to the 2015 Vitality Bath Half Marathon have now sold out – so congratulations on securing your place. We’re delighted you’ll be joining us and 14,999 other runners on Sunday 1 March.
Our monthly newsletters for registered entrants in the 2015 Vitality Bath Half Marathon will contain news and information to help you prepare for the race, and important information about race day.
If you have friends, family or colleagues who missed out on a general public place we still have a handful of half marathon entries left for our Corporate Challenge for business teams.
Reserved charity entries are also available from Teenage Cancer Trust and our other OFFICIAL RACE CHARITIES but these are also selling fast.
Thanks to those of you who have already entered with one of our official charities and good luck with your training and fundraising.
You can also keep up to date with preparations and the latest Vitality Bath Half chatter on Facebook and Twitter. We love to hear from our runners about how you’re getting on with your preparations for the big day.
All the best,
Race Director, Vitality BATHALF
