General public entry for the 2014 Bath Half Marathon opens at www.bathhalf.co.uk| on Monday 4 March.
If you get your own place directly through the race organisers, we'd love to have you as part of Team Macmillan. And there's no minimum sponsorship pledge.
We hope to have Golden Bond places available in the Bath Half Marathon. If you would like to be informed when these places become available then please contact us| with your details.
We ask you to raise a minimum sponsorship amount of £250 for your Team Macmillan guaranteed place. Please note that Gift Aid cannot be included towards the above sponsorship amount.
These are guaranteed places that Macmillan Cancer Support have purchased directly from the Bath Half Marathon race organisers (Running High). We require you to complete a Team Macmillan guaranteed place application form for one of these places. Charity places for 2014 will become available shortly.
Macmillan has paid the £41 entry fee on your behalf for these places in return for a pledge to raise a minimum £250. However, if you're able to pay this yourself it'll ensure that all of your sponsorship can go directly towards helping people living with cancer. If every person who is allocated a guaranteed place pays their entry fee it will make a difference of over £2,500.
If you wish to pay this you can simply enclose a cheque for £41 payable to Macmillan Cancer Support Trading Ltd, or call us on 020 7840 4915 to pay over the phone.
Your 'own place' means that you have entered the online system for the Bath Half Marathon directly through the Bath Half Marathon website, www.bathhalf.co.uk|. Plus you'll have paid an entry fee directly to Running High, the Bath Half Marathon race organisers.
Once your place has been confirmed in the Bath Half Marathon by the race organisers, we'd be delighted for you to join Team Macmillan. Simply fill in our online form| or contact us| with your details.

We ask that all our guaranteed charity place runners raise a minimum of £250 (not including Gift Aid). This will be due in one month after the event. Of course we'll give you all the encouragement and support you'll need to make sure you smash this target.
If you have your own place, we just ask that you raise as much as possible and we'll provide you with the same level of care and support that all our runners receive.
When you join Team Macmillan you will be supported throughout your entire Bath Half Marathon experience.
In addition to our initial fundraising pack and training guide, we will send you regular newsletters full of tips to help you prepare for the big day.
You will also be invited to our post-race Team Macmillan tent, where you will receive a huge congratulations on completing the big race, lots of pampering and a selection of refreshments.

If you get injured while training we recommend you contact your GP, physio or specialist sports injury clinic. They will be able to advise you if you are fit enough to run.
