If you're a first-time runner, or it has been a while, now is the time to act! Bath Half Marathon usually happens in March, but this year they are hosting virtual 5k (and 10k) runs on the 13-14th March weekend. Perfect for getting you off the sofa and into your daps.

Sign up to the 5k run for £15, and you will receive a tshirt, medal and a training plan from Bath Half. You can also get the free NHS 'From Couch to 5k' app or podcast and by March 14th you'll be ready to join in the fun. They even have celebrity coaches!

  

And then, as the evenings are brightening, and you're feeling fit, you'll be on your way to taking on the real-life Bath Half Marathon on Sunday 4th September!

You can get sponsored for all your running journey - wherever it takes you - and raise vital funds for cats and dogs at the Home. We welcome you to our BCDH Running Team whether you are aiming for the 5k, the 10k or the Bath Half. You'll get access to our Facebook runners group and emails of encouragement. Email our team and let us know what you are doing!
