Bath College confirms ongoing support for Bath Half fun run

By Nick Batten on 27 July, 2022

This year’s BATHALF Family Fun Run is again sponsored by Bath College, which is also providing massages in the Runner’s Village to those who are running the Bath half marathon the following day.

The fun run returns in 2022 in a new format, as the highlight of the new community day in Royal Victoria Park on Saturday 15th October.

The Family Fun run is open to all ages and abilities. This year the course is one mile long and completely traffic free, around the perimeter of Middle Common in Royal Victoria Park.

Entries for the 2022 BATHALF Family Fun Run are now open, through the event website at https://bathhalf.co.uk/how-to-enter/family-fun-run-entries/. Entry to the Family Fun Run costs £6.80 for a child under 16yrs and £10.80 for an adult, and there is a free t-shirt for every entrant and a medal and goody bag for all finishers.

Race Director, Andrew Taylor said, “We are delighted to welcome Bath College back as a Local Partner for the Bath Half. As the largest community event in the city, we particularly value the support of the local community.

“The Family Fun Run is an ideal way to introduce people to running in a safe race environment and to find out what it is like to run a bit of the main course too. It is great fun and open for people of all ages and abilities to take part. It is hugely popular and every year the fun run sells out very quickly, so if you are keen then my advice is to sign up as soon as you can.

Our half marathon runners particularly appreciate the services of Bath College’s excellent team providing massages to tired legs after the half marathon.”

Jayne Davis, Principal and Chief Executive at Bath College added, “We are delighted to be sponsoring the BATHALF Family Fun Run again this year and to be providing masseurs for the half marathon from our Sport, Complementary/Spa Therapy and Beauty students and their tutors. We know what an important event this is to the Bath Community and as a college with our roots in the heart of the city, we feel this is a fantastic partnership.”
