Save the date – Sunday 2nd May 2021
Planning is currently underway to hold a COVID-safe event in 2021. Please check out the details on our Covid Safe Event page for important changes to this years event. And please follow our Facebook page for regular updates.
The Bathurst Half Marathon Inc is a not-for-profit organisation made up of Bathurstians with a passion for seeing the community participate in running events. Our committee volunteer their time, effort and talents striving to deliver a great experience for all runners on the day and bring you one of the best-value running events on the calendar that includes a free sausage sizzle and lucky draw prizes.
In 2016 we welcome a new major sponsor, the Bathurst RSL Club, who also have strong community links and sponsor a variety of local teams and events.
In addition, each year we are humbled by the support and assistance of other locals. We are assisted by the Bathurst Rotary Club who act as on-course marshalls, Bathurst CSU who provide our Paramedics, and our local newspaper and radio stations who assist us in the promotion of the event.
In the same way that people generously assist us, we are committed to putting profits from our event back into the community. In prior years we have donated money to the Bathurst Rotary Club supporting their community projects. In 2016, we have also committed to donating to the parkrun organisation in their pursuit of getting a local event happening to encourage a healthy lifestyle and participation in regular exercise.
