BATHALF Entrants Newsletter
Happy New Year from all of us at Running High. Now that we are in 2020, race day is starting to feel that bit closer!
With only 9 weeks to go, we’re starting to see a big uplift in runners pounding the streets of Bath which is amazing, just make sure you remember your reflective clothing and lights if you are training first thing or during the evening.
Just a reminder, if you have friends or family looking for an entry, the only way to take part now is via a charity entry or by taking part in the Family Fun Run. Both close on the 7th February.
In the following newsletter we’ve got a message from our new Event Partner, Wessex Water about race day water stations and eliminating single use plastic at the Bath Half; important information about race pack mailouts as well as a great offer from High5 nutrition.

A message from event partner Wessex Water
The 2020 Bath Half Marathon will be free from single-use plastics for the first time, with Wessex Water supplying fresh tap water to runners all the way round the famous course.
Bring along your reusable bottles and look out for our HydroZone refill points. Prefer not to run with a bottle? Don’t worry, our water stations will be handing out cupped water to make sure you hydrate, feel great and smash that PB!
Why Wessex Water?
Based in the city, we provide water and sewerage services to 2.8 million customers and support a variety of local events. We’re run by local employees who are customers themselves and members of the communities we serve.
We’re on a mission to reduce single-use plastics, installing water refill points across our region to encourage people to drink more tap water and avoid plastic bottles.
That’s why we’re proud to be keeping runners hydrated at this year’s Bath Half, becoming the first UK water company to partner with a road race. Good luck to you all!

If you aren’t running for a charity yet, why not consider running for one of our partner charities, CLIC Sargent?
When cancer strikes young lives CLIC Sargent helps families limit the damage cancer causes beyond their health. We provide specialist support, to help and guide each young cancer patient and their family, so they can focus on what’s import.
Join Team Young lives today and help stop cancer destroying young lives. Raising just £33 could pay for a family to stay in one of our Homes from Home for a night. A Home from Home allows family to stay near the hospital when their child is going through treatment many miles from home. As part of Team Young Lives we’ll deck you out in the coolest of kit so everyone knows what an amazing thing you’re doing. We’ll give you the loudest of cheers around the course and will be on hand at the finish to have you skipping home after a well-earned massage. Team Young Lives is awesome. Fact. And we’d love for you to be part of it.
