BF100 - Bath Half Marathon 2019

Bishop Fleming and Cornwall Air Ambulance

 

In 2019, Bishop Fleming celebrated its centenary year and to mark this unique milestone its people set the ambitious target of raising £100,000 through a range of fundraising challenges. At the heart of this target was our largest mass participation challenge - our title partnership of the Bath Half Marathon. This is the largest charity fundraising event in the South West and is a great community celebration for the city. 

We entered a team of 120 runners which is nearly one third of our total staff, forming the largest corporate team in the 29-year history of the event. Uniquely, we invited all runners to run for a charity of their own choice and Team BF100 went on to raise £35,000 for over 60 different charities. The firm also pledged to give away £2,000 by helping 20 Bath Half runners through a social media competition which was launched on the day of the event. The event was such a success that Bishop Fleming has agreed to be title partner of the 2020 event and is entering an even larger team of 130 runners. Our £100,000 target was smashed in July 2019 and we went on to raise an amazing £150,000.
