Bath Half Marathon Family Fun Run entries closed
Entries for the Bath Half Family Fun Run are now closed following an influx of sign ups since the start of the year.
The Bath Half Marathon also sold out in November, three months before the race which takes place on Sunday, March 3.
Each year, between 20,000 and 30,000 spectators line the streets of Bath to cheer on the runners and organisers are keen to encourage those not taking part in the race to go along and support.
Running High director Mel Taylor said: “If you’ve missed out on a place, there is still chance to be a part of the 2013 event by coming along to support our runners at the start and finish, as well as at key cheering points around the route.

“Whilst many of our runners will be experienced, we are also expecting lots of first timers, who will be undertaking an enormous personal challenge to raise money for one of our deserved charities.
“The support those runners get around the course each year is overwhelming and really helps to keep them going to the finish straight, so I would urge you to come out with your friends and family and help us to create that magical atmosphere again this year.
“There is entertainment right around the route to keep our runners and spectators going through the day and we also have Dermot O’Leary, Greg James and comedian, Patrick Monahan running for our lead charity, CoppaFeel! this year so you might even be lucky enough to see them out on the course”.
Key cheering points around the route include Queen Square, Churchill Bridge, Green Park, Royal Victoria Park and Pinesway.
The two-lap course also means that spectators will get the opportunity to cheer on all runners twice.
The Bath Half, which never fails to sell out well in advance of the event, is the biggest half marathon in the West Country and the largest one-day charity fundraising event in the region, supporting over 80 local and national charities each year.
The 2012 event raised more than £1.5 million for good causes and is expected to grow even further in the next few years.
Those who have missed out on a place for this year will be able to enter the 2014 Bath Half the day after race day at www.bathhalf.co.uk.
