BATHALF Family Fun Run entrants newsletter
With just 10 days to go until race day we’ve been watching runners battling through the unsettled weather pounding the streets of Bath getting final training and long runs under your belt before tapering ahead of the big day
We’re keeping a close eye on the weather forecast. The current showering and blustery weather looks likely to continue up to race day!
In the meantime we’ve got some important news to share with you and an update on public transport
All the best
| || Eliminating single use plastic at the BATHALF |
This year we are encouraging runners to bring your own reusable water bottle to the event, your favourite bottle which you use during your training.
We will be providing bottled water after the finish, but in future years we will be replacing this with cupped water. This year we are also providing a water refill point before the start in the Runners Village for runners wanting to refill your own bottle.
This is the first step of our journey to remove single use plastic and bottled drinks at our event by 2021.
At the BATHALF we’ve always worked hard to improve the sustainability of our event. We have achieved recycling rates of 69-86% for each of the last 5 years. In the next couple of years we will be working with our runners, our suppliers, our volunteers and contractors to develop new processes and products to replace single use plastic
