We are very sorry that the Bath Half Marathon has been cancelled! We are grateful to our 14 runners all the hard work put in training and fundraising so far.

Welcome to Team WMC! Join our team of 20 runners in our 20th Anniversary year and help to support music-making for all.

We reach over 60,000 people each year, at concerts and through music-making opportunities. The Centre provides a permanent home for local orchestras, choirs, and music therapy groups, and we work extensively with schools and special needs groups in the local area, ensuring that everyone can access life-changing music. Zone Club is just one of our projects, reaching learning disabled young people who have left school and who are some of the most socially excluded people in our community. Zone Club brings them together to create music, dance and film, make new friendships, and grow in confidence. We must fundraise over £200,000 each year to be able to deliver all our projects and activities, including Zone Club.

2018 marks our 20th Anniversary and we are celebrating the Centre's history and looking ahead to the future. As part of our celebrations we are raising an extra £100,000 to help us continue offering music-making for all, a diverse range of concerts and new stage lighting which will reduce our carbon footprint by 86%. Help us celebrate and raise much-needed funds by running the Bath Half with us!

How to run for us:

The Bath Half Marathon will take place on Sunday 4 March 2018. Each year, over 15,000 people run 13.1 miles and help to raise over £2 million for charity. To find out more about the race itself, please visit the official website.

Official charity places:

To sign up with one of our official charity places we simply ask you to contact Camilla by email or call 01225 860 110. We ask that all runners pay a £20 registration fee which helps us to cover the cost of the event and pledge to raise £500+ which will all go directly to fund music-making opportunities for children and vulnerable young adults in our 20th Anniversary year.

General public places:

Already secured a running place? Not sure who to run for? Please consider Wiltshire Music Centre as your charity this year and fundraise to support us. No minimum target applies but if you exceed £500 you'll receive a free WMC t-shirt! Write to Camilla at camilla.johns@wiltshiremusic.org.uk or call us on 01225 860 110 to get involved.
