Make a difference with your Bath Half place

For the last few months you’ve been dragging yourself out for a run, whilst others have slept, or stayed on the sofa. You’ve been soaked through, frozen solid, and up to your knees in mud. You’re probably knackered and your knees might hurt too, and we bet that you’re really sick of washing your running kit!

We wanted to say that you make us feel really proud – every day we see more and more runners pounding the pavements and lanes in and around Bath. It’s our favourite time of year – we love seeing you all preparing for race day.

What also makes us feel proud is seeing all your fundraising posts on our social media feeds. So many inspirational stories, so many superb causes, and so much effort being put into collecting those pennies and pounds. Thank you to you all.

In 2017 our official race charities raised a record £2.25million pounds and we would love to beat that again in 2018.

If you’re thinking about fundraising through your 2018 Bath Half efforts, then we’d love you to consider raising money for one of our official race charities. The simplest way to do that is by setting up a Just Giving fundraising page in a few quick steps. Choose a charity from our list below and click straight through to Just Giving and start your fundraising today.

You can see all 130 of our race charities over on our Bath Half website. You can also get a few tips about how to get your fundraising off to a great start too.

All the best,


Andrew Taylor
Race Director
