Need a new fitness goal for 2022? Achieve those all while supporting a local charity as well. Bristol-based children’s hospice, Jessie May, have several exciting challenge events coming up over the next year, including the ever-popular Bath Half Marathon on Sunday 13th March.

The Bath Half Marathon is now one of the most in-demand half marathons in the UK, and regularly sells out months before the race date. In fact, The Daily Telegraph voted The Bath Half ‘Third Best Running Event’. And what makes the event even more special is its outstanding reputation for its wonderful atmosphere. You could be part of the iconic Bath Half with thousands of runners and experience Bath like never before, all whilst supporting Jessie May’s specialist palliative care nurses.

“Having been the Interim Head of Care between 2019 and 2020, I have been able to see first-hand the incredible work of #TeamJessie and I wanted to continue my support in some way. It was a privilege to run the Bath Half Marathon for this amazing charity, raising vital funds to benefit the incredible children and families that the Jessie May nurses support.”
