Overview

The Vitality Bath Half Marathon is a fast flat course, straddling both sides of the river Avon and avoiding all the hills surrounding the City. It is an ‘honest’ two-lap course with proven PB (‘personal best’ time) criteria, entirely traffic-free (full road closures throughout). Even at the front end you’ll have plenty of company to pull you round for a good time. This is a ‘Big City’ race, starting & finishing at the same point in Great Pulteney Street – with a roadway spanning 46 feet – one of the widest Georgian boulevards in Europe and a course that threads through the heart of this historic city. The first mile is gently downhill down Pulteney Road to Churchill Bridge – so resist all temptations to go off too fast. You then follow two identical laps from Churchill Bridge, gently rising up past Green Park Station, a gentle ‘pull’ round Queen Square (the most crowded spot for spectators on the course), then down Charlotte Street and out along the Upper Bristol Road, gently undulating along Newbridge Road, and a longer ‘pull’ up to the ‘New Bridge’ at the beginning of the dual carriageway. From the ‘Twerton Fork’ the race heads back towards the City centre, pancake flat along Lower Bristol Road, before crossing over Churchill Bridge and up Green Park again for the beginning of the second lap. At the end of the second lap the runners pass across Churchill Bridge, finally rising gently (but remorselessly) back up Pulteney Road all the way to the finish with a dramatic last 200 metres in Great Pulteney Street.

This was my second half-marathon having taken up running (via c25k) a couple of years ago. Bath Half (known as Bathalf) most certainly did not disappoint! From the anticipatory buzz at the Runner’s Village through to every street corner, support was in abundance. Beware the tempt...Read full review

This was a race that I first did back in 2007, it was my 2nd Half Marathon and back in a city where I studied and lived for 4 years. This time around I was back running with my wife. The first thing to say is that I would not describe the course as fast and flat, rather fast and...Read full review
