Take part in one of the most popular half marathons in the UK in aid of Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance. Why not run the Bath Half Marathon and support our life-saving service?

    Why run the Bath Half for us?

    Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance has been there for critically ill and injured people when they need us the most for over 20 years. Our yellow helicopter can often be seen in the skies over Dorset and Somerset. We provide a critical care service using our helicopter and critical care car and an enhanced care service using our outreach cars.

    The service we provide is 95% funded by charitable giving; by people like you. Last year, your air ambulance service was tasked to 2,424 incidents; with each mission costing approximately £3,500. Together, with your support, we can be there for patients today, tomorrow and in the future.

    The enhanced skills of our team, specialist equipment and drugs that we carry, along with the speed of our response, can make the difference between life and death. Last year, we attended over two thousand incidents, that’s an average of six incidents a day. By taking part in the Bath Half Marathon, you will not only have an incredible day experiencing the race, but you will also be supporting a local life-saving service.
