Bath Half Corporate Challenge Newsletter March 2014
Congratulations to all our Corporate Challenge runners’ who completed Sunday’s BATHALF!
We have been overwhelmed by your wonderful comments and messages of thanks – thank you so much for these – they really do mean a great deal to us.
The 2014 race really was a very special one – despite the challenging weather conditions we had record numbers of both runners and spectators and the streets of Bath were completely transformed for a few magical hours on Sunday.
Events like this don’t happen on their own so we would like to thank all our volunteers and sponsors for all their efforts in making the 2014 Bath Half so special.
The runners who work so hard have once again raised incredible amounts of money for charity are a real inspiration to us. In the last thirteen years the Bath Half has raised over £12million for charity, making it the largest single day fundraising event in the South West and one of the biggest fundraisers of its kind in the UK. We anticipate that over £2million will have been raised for charity at Sunday’s race.
In addition to this newsletter, we will also be emailing you next week with an invitation to complete our post-race customer survey. The results from this survey help us to focus on the areas which are important to you, and your input really is invaluable.
And last but not least, seeing as you’ve now had a few days to recover, we thought we’d let you know that entries for the Bath Half 2015 are NOW OPEN! We’re offering Early Bird Entries at a £2 discount off next year’s entry price for anyone who registers in the next six weeks ENTER HERE
Next year’s race will be held on Sunday 1st March
All the best,
