What is the Bath Half Marathon Fund?

The Bath Half Marathon Fund (‘BHM Fund’) was established by the event organisers Running High Events Limited in 2003 to channel donations from entrants in the Bath Half Marathon to grants for small, local voluntary organisations within Bath & North East Somerset.

What can you apply for?

You can apply for a grant towards a new activity or continuing something you are already doing. We won’t award a grant towards work that has already been completed, and you should plan to start spending the grant within six months of it being awarded.

 In addition, the application must be for one of the following purposes:

  • Sport
  • Active Lifestyles
  • Play

Who can apply?

We welcome applications to the Bath Half Marathon Fund from small, local voluntary and community organisations where a small amount of money can make a difference.  Applicants must be based and/or working in Bath & North East Somerset. To be eligible for a Bath Half Marathon Fund Grant the work of your organisation must benefit people who are disadvantaged or isolated. People may be disadvantaged due to health issues, poverty, disability, age, location or culture. 

To apply to the Bath Half Marathon Fund, you do not have to be a registered charity, as long as the work you do has charitable aims. Priority is given to small organisations and to projects which would not otherwise benefit from the Bath Half Marathon official race charity scheme, or other Bath Half Marathon community funding (for instance for volunteering services at the event).
