Bath Half Marathon and the Family Fun Run!

We would like to say a big thank you to all those who participated in the Bath Half Marathon and the Family Fun Run for I CAN! Taking place on the 3rd March, it was a fantastic day with over 50 half marathon runners and 1,000 Family Fun Runners taking part. We held a pre race reception where all our runners were able to meet  and get geared up to take on the challenge! The Family Fun Runners were thrilled to be joined by Humf, our purple furry friend from Nick Jr. who wished all our I CAN Runners good luck and waved them off from the start line!

It was lovely to be able to personally congratulate each runner at our post race reception where we were able to see how they got on. For many all the training and hard work paid off in the end! It is such a great achievement and we are so proud of everyone who took part. So far we have raised over £7,000 from this event and it has not stopped there as donations are still coming in thick and fast from runners and supporters!  A special mention goes to the Grafton–Gratton and Robson families for participating in both the half marathon and the family fun run!

Virginia Beardshaw, Chief Executive of I CAN, who attended on the day says ‘It was a fun day out for all of us who took part, whether we were runners or just there in support.  Seeing so many people giving their all to the two runs was impressive,  and we are grateful to everyone who  helped our cause by donating the proceeds to I CAN.’

We have some lovely photos that capture the true spirit on the day!

If you feel inspired and would like to run for I CAN in 2014, reserve your place now!
