Congratulations to all 13,000 runners who finished this year’s Vitality BATH HALF. Provisional results are now available and can be found on our website. If you have any queries please do get in touch with us via the official race results query form.
Our event photographers, Marathon Photos aim to capture images of all our runners. These can be viewed via their links from our website within 24-48 hours. We’d also like your photos, so please share them on our Facebook and Twitter pages.
A huge thank you to everyone who has raised money for charity this year. With over 100 charities involved, including our four featured ones – The Teenage Cancer Trust (Lead), The RUH Forever Friends Appeal, Bath Rugby Foundation and Jamie’s Farm (Fun Run), as well as the official Vitality Run Series charity – Laureus Sport for Good Foundation, 2015 was our biggest event yet and we expect our runners to raise well in excess of two million pounds.
We also had our first British winners for quite some time (since 2003 for the men’s and 2010 for the women’s), with Paul Martelletti taking the men’s race and Emma Stepto the women’s event. Well done to both of them, as well as our fun run winners Max Davis (aged 13) and Katie Seaborne (aged 16). Watch out for both of them in years to come.
For the first time in Bath, we held a ‘Battle of the Bands’ competition, with six featured acts performing for our runners at various points around the course. I’m told it went down well with our celebrity runner, Russell Howard, who enjoyed them very much. You will be able to vote for your favourite band in our runner survey, due out on Wednesday.
For those that can’t get enough of the Vitality BATH HALF, entries are now open for 2016. The race takes place on 13th March 2016 and we expect it to sell out quickly once again, so if you intend to run next year, get your entry in now and benefit from our early bird pricing.
Lastly, an enormous thank you to all the local volunteers and all our staff and support teams that have helped plan and deliver our event this year. We couldn’t do it without you and really appreciate your efforts both prior to and during the event. A special thanks also to the residents of Bath, and Bath & North East Somerset Council for their continued and welcoming support for the race.
We had a fantastic day and we hope you all did too. To check out the best bits and for a full report of this year’s race, please visit our website or catch-up with us on Twitter or Facebook. We’d love you to share your highlights so please get posting and sharing as well.
