We are on the lookout for people willing to take on a healthy challenge in 2019 by joining our amazing team of runners in the infamous Bath Half Marathon.

The Bath Half Marathon, taking place on the 17th March 2019, is arguably one of the UK’s best running events, world renowned for its great atmosphere, flat terrain and route passing through one of the country’s most beautiful cities. Whether you are an experienced runner looking to achieve your personal best or a first timer attempting your first running challenge, it is sure to be a fun day for everyone taking part!

Runners joining team Off the Record will receive:

Free entry to the race
Free running vest
Support with training and fundraising

All that we ask in return is:

  1. Each runner raises a minimum of £200.00 in sponsorship.

  2. Support the events that we organise by selling tickets, getting raffle prizes, get involved and attend

All donations will go towards our work and helping to change the lives of vulnerable young people in the Bath and North East Somerset community.

Over half a million young people in England are suffering with a mental illness right now and in the South West the problem is serious. In Bath and North East Somerset alone, it is estimated that over 4,000 young people have a mental health condition. Last year, we helped 1000 young people feel better about themselves and their lives but the waiting list for our counselling and support services continues to grow. We want to live in a community and a world where no young person is suffering in silence and where our doors can always be open to support those in need. Fundraising and running for us in events such as the Bath Half plays a very important part in us raising vital funds to continue this life-changing work - we can’t do it without you!

Did you know? 

  • £10 buys a young person the chance to be heard in a listening support session

  • £30 buys a counselling session for a young person in crisis

  • £100 keeps our doors open longer to help more young people in need

So join our team and be a part of something special. Make new friends, get fit, and make a true difference to the lives of young people in our community.
