2019 Bath Half Marathon

Team SWALLOW Charity excelled themselves for this year's Bath Half Marathon. We had 16 runners who completed the 13.1 mile road run around Bath, one of the most beautiful cities in the world. It was a beautiful, sunny, crisp day which made for better running conditions than the stormy winds and rains of the week before. 

All the members of Team SWALLOW Charity did amazingly well, our fastest runner was Nathan who completed the run in 1 hour and 33 minutes, a phenomenal effort.  However the day really belongs to two inspiring individuals who actually receive direct support from SWALLOW and have first hand experience of our work, Dan and Clarissa.

Dan wanted to participate in the Bath Half Marathon in memory of his Dad and has dedicated his medal to him.  Whilst Clarissa wanted to challenge herself and didn't think she would be able to do it. But she did! Both individuals are very proud of themselves and we are too.  Well done Dan and Clarissa.

Very many thanks to the Westfield TT Running Group, led by John Reynolds, for encouraging Dan and Shelley in their training.

Entries for the 2020 Bath Half Marathon are now open and we will have some reduced entry places available for Team SWALLOW Charity. If you have been inspired to follow in the footsteps of Dan and Clarissa and you are an individual wanting to do something good for the people in your local community, or if you are a company who encourages staff to get involved with local charitable causes, we would REALLY love to hear from you.
