Race Director, Andrew Taylor, said, “We are thrilled to have sold out so soon but are not surprised after such a fantastic event this March.  The race is famed for its fast, flat course which never fails to attract the running community.  The timing of next year’s race has also worked in our favour – six weeks before the Virgin London Marathon, providing a great warm up for those runners taking part in the capital’s event.”

To find out more about the event and how you can take up one of the last remaining places please visit www.bathhalf.co.uk or call 01225 422 255.
