My brotherTom Edwards went missing in July this year and after 5 days of searching sadly his body was found close to railway tracks in Chippenham. I have put together a small team to run the Bath Half Marathon in his memory and to raise money for Wiltshire Search and Rescue which helped look for him during the period he was
missing. During this time WILSAR provided over 70 volunteers and searched for a combined total of more than 600 hours. Although Toms search ended in such a tragic and heartbreaking manner we will never forget all those that helped search for him and gave us hope. Tom is still much loved by us all and I consider it an honour to try and raise money in his name for such
a great cause.

Event Details

Bath Half Marathon

The Bath Half Marathon - or the 'Bath Half' as it is affectionately known, is one of the longest established and most popular city centre road events in the UK. It is also the largest charity fundraising event in the South West region, raising over £1.5 million for charity last year alone. The course itself is fast and flat making it suitable for all abilities – for beginners whose key objective is to complete the course, to more regular long-distance event runners, looking to beat their personal best time. It covers a two lap 13.1 mile (21.1km) traffic-free course straddling both sides of the River Avon. The race starts and finishes in Great Pulteney Street, in the heart of the World Heritage City of Bath
