Bath Half Marathon
The route is fast, flat and suitable for all, you don’t want to miss the Bath Half! Run right through the heart of this beautiful world heritage city, past iconic buildings and across the famous Pulteney Bridge.
You can look forward to the incredible crowd support that the Bath Half Marathon is famous for, and fantastic local bands will be playing at nine different locations along the route!
Join Team Young Lives at this Half Marathon and help support children and young people facing cancer!
We’d love for you to join our epic team. See all charity place details below.
Registration fee: £20
Minimum fundraising target: £200
Every £38 you raise could pay for a family to stay overnight in one of Young Lives vs Cancer’s Homes from Home, providing free self-catering accommodation near to specialist children’s cancer treatment centres, which are often many miles from a family’s own home. Staying in a Home from Home ensures a family can be close to their child during treatment.
If you have secured your own place in the event, you can still join Team Young Lives! Join with no minimum fundraising target, we simply ask that you raise as much as you can.
Lucky you! You can still join Team Young Lives at Bath Half Marathon and support children and young people with cancer at a time when they need your help more than ever.
We don’t ask you to raise a minimum amount, we simply ask that you raise as much as you can.
We love our runners, and we want them to have an awesome experience! Some of the benefits of joining our team are:
- Super cool kit to wear on race day – we will send you a running vest after Bath Half Marathon’s official registration deadline
- Our closed Facebook group where you can meet other Young Lives vs Cancer sporting legends, share fundraising ideas and training tips
- Our online Event Hub where you can find training plans, useful fundraising tools and injury resolution advice
- We’ll shower you with advice, ideas and materials to get the money rolling in, and if you ever need us we’re only a phone call away.
Cancer is shocking, overwhelming, isolating… and completely unfair. Especially when you’re young. It takes over your life. Treatment is gruelling and your ambitions and dreams suddenly seem very far away.
We get that. That’s why Young Lives vs Cancer fights tirelessly to stop cancer destroying young lives. We provide grants and free accommodation close to hospital to help with spiralling costs. Our care teams are on hand to help families with everything from getting benefits to treatment closer to home. And we lobby the government to make sure they get the support they’re entitled to. We’re here to make sure young cancer patients can focus on getting their lives back on track.
If you have any questions, or simply want to know more about running for Young Lives vs Cancer, please get in touch!

All events will be council approved, will be COVID secure and will only go ahead in line with government guidance. We know it’s tricky to think ahead in times like these, but don’t worry, we’ll keep you updated every step of the way.
Normally our registration fees are non-refundable but if the Bath Half is cancelled because of COVID, we will happily offer you a full refund of your registration fee.
