Runner’s Area


Thank you for signing up to the Bath Half.

This page is filled with online resources to help you promote your fundraising, as well as running tips and training plans. We will be there every step of the way so don’t hesitate to contact us directly if you’d like anything else!

Fundraising Tips

Sponsor me!

Use your social media channels, email and Whatsapp groups to tell everyone you are running the Bath Half as part of #TeamJF. Use our ‘support me’ social media assets to help with this. They are also useful to use on your JustGiving page to give it that personal touch. 

To encourage people to sponsor you, send them Dia’s Story or Adele’s Poem to bring the message of what we do at Jamie’s Farm to life. If people know why you have chosen Jamie’s Farm to fundraise for, they’re much more likely to donate. 

Our short charity video is a great way to bring the Jamie’s Farm experience to life. All our videos are available on our Youtube channel.

Say thank you

Once you’ve received a donation, send one of our Thank You letters from the young people who have spent time at Jamie’s Farm. It’s always a great idea to tell the Jamie’s Farm story from the perspective of those benefitting from your fundraising. 

Fundraising ideas

It’s important to get going early with your fundraising so you have plenty of time to focus on your training nearer to race day. Whatever you choose to do, remember you are making a real difference to vulnerable young people across England and Wales who need your help, now more than ever.  

Something small

  • Invite friends for brunch or dinner and get them to donate £20 for the night. 
  • Sell any unwanted clothes via Vinted or E-bay and donate the money to your own Just Giving page.
  • Encourage some friendly betting on the FA Cup final, Grand National or go one step further with a charity Fantasy Football League.
  • Request donations instead of Birthday or Christmas presents – or even in lieu of Wedding gifts!

Fundraising at work

  • Matched giving – A simple way to double your money! Ask your company to match the amount you’ve raised and it instantly becomes double the benefit.
  • Parties – Whatever time of year – spring, summer, autumn or winter – there’s always a good excuse to throw a party. Why not raise money for Jamie’s Farm at your Christmas or Summer do?
  • Sports events – Golf days and football competitions will inject a bit of competitive spirit into the workplace. Charge people to enter or get sponsored by friends and family. 
  • Fancy dress – Ditch those suits and ties and charge everyone £1 to dress up. Those who don’t dress up should get charged double.

Training Tips

To help get you to the start line feeling ready and prepared, we have a collection of materials to support with your training and nutritional plan.
