As the sun comes up on race day, there is always a real sense of excitement and anticipation. Runners and spectators pour into the city centre, traffic begins to ebb away ready for the race and the city feels very different. There is no other day like it in Bath.
In past years the sight of 15,000 runners setting off down Great Pulteney Street, and then returning to the same spot, 13.1 miles later, has never failed to take our breath away.
This vast boulevard is lined with spectators, sending you off, and welcoming you back, with so much encouragement. Whatever the weather on race day, the spectators arrive in their thousands to show their support.
The support continues around the whole course. We estimate that around 30,000 people line the streets of Bath on race day, so you’ll never find a quiet stretch along the route.
In addition you will see lots of our race charities at cheering spots too.Register
