Runners are being offered a refund on their entry fees as organisers said there was no hope of rescheduling.

Sadly, it is not possible to simply postpone the race to a future date. A big 'closed road' participation event such as ours can't be easily re-scheduled, it is not like re-booking a spectator event in a fixed venue.

Around 15,000 runners are expected to pound the pavements for the 35th Bath Half Marathon. It is a fast and flat route, said to be suitable for all abilities and one where PBs can be achieved.

The two-lap 13.1 mile course starts and finishes in Great Pulteney Street and straddles both sides of the River Avon.

Sharon Davies will start the race at 11:00 am.
