You can read the full statement from the organisers here.
We will be in touch with our runners shortly to let them know next steps.
Join our team and take on the Bath Half Marathon on Sunday 16 October 2022. 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!
We love our runners, and we want them to have an awesome experience! Some of the benefits of joining our team are:
A Young Lives vs Cancer vest so you look awesome and stand out in the crowd
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.
The loudest of cheers on race day – we may have to be more than 2m away but you’ll still hear us
If allowed, marquee in the race village with hot drinks, snacks for you and your friends and family
Post-race massage if regulations allow.
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.
We’re really gutted that so many 2020 events were postponed or cancelled. We know we’re not in the clear yet, and you may be worried about booking onto this event and it being cancelled or postponed. But rest assured there is no risk!
Your safety is always our priority and if we or the event oragnisers don’t feel it’s safe for your event to go ahead then we will contact you to discuss this with you. 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.
