Vitality Bath Half - a huge thank you to our runners
As thousands of runners crossed the finish line on a cool day back in March, they had more that the completion of 13.1miles to be proud of – our amazing Bath Halfers had raised a staggering £2.1 million for charity – a record amount for our race.
Since 2000 our Bath Halfers have raised over £16 million making the Bath Half the largest single day fundraising event in the South West, second only to the Glastonbury Festival.
For a city the size of Bath it is an impressive achievement to be able to maintain our fundraising position in the top three road races in the whole of the UK, and we would like to thank our runners who keep supporting the Bath Half and our fantastic race charities.
All the best,
