Aderire Bath Half Marathon
The Bath Half Marathon is a ‘big city’ race, starting and finishing on Great Pulteney Street – a beautiful Georgian boulevard in the heart of Bath. This course is fast and flat with proven potential to set a new personal best.
By looping around the city twice, our runners do not have to tackle the famous (and large) hills that surround the city of Bath.
You will run two identical laps on completely traffic free roads, supported every step of the way by the tens of thousands of spectators who line the entire route. Click on this image to see the course route.
The sight of 15,000 runners set off down Great Pulteney Street, and then return to the same spot, 13.1 miles later, never fails to take our breath away.
This vast boulevard is lined with spectators, sending you off, and welcoming you back, with so much encouragement. Whatever the weather on race day, the spectators arrive in their thousands to show their support.
The support continues around the whole course. We estimate that around 30,000 people line the streets of Bath on race day, so you’ll never find a quiet stretch along the route.
Punti salienti del corso
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.
