Volunteering


Events such as the Bath Half Marathon could not be staged without the support of committed and enthusiastic volunteers who generously give up their valuable time to perform essential duties.

Over 800 volunteers join our Bath Half team every year to help the event run smoothly.

Working on a major public event is almost as exciting as actually taking part, whether in the ‘front line’ assisting thousands of runners achieve life-time bests, or in the less glamorous world ‘behind the scenes’ ensuring the event runs smoothly.

Besides the reward of being part of the team we also pay volunteers expenses for working on the Bath Half Marathon at the rate of £25 per youth (12-15yrs), £35 per adult (16yrs & over).

Many of our volunteers donate their expenses to a local charity or voluntary group – some of who use the Bath Half Marathon as one of their main annual fundraisers. We have established relationships with a number of local voluntary groups, many of whom have been working on the event for many years.

Volunteers are briefed and supervised by staff from Running High Events. Priority is given to existing volunteers and to volunteers fundraising for local charities. Remaining opportunities are on a first-come-first-served basis.
