Break a record – join our Bath Half team now!

Off the Record is on the lookout for people willing to take on a healthy challenge for the New Year by joining our amazing team of runners in the infamous Bath Half Marathon.

The Bath Half Marathon, taking place in March 2017, 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, a free running vest, support with training, fundraising and more along the way. All that we ask is that runners raise a minimum of £175 in sponsorship. 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 over 800 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!

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.
