Just a quick update, so on Sunday 15th March I decided not to run the Bath Half because I was concerned about Coronavirus and the risk it posed for me. It wasn't an easy decision to make but it was the right decision for me. So instead of hitting the streets of Bath I went out and ran an entire marathon on the canal path, I ran from Bradford-on-Avon to Devizes and back again, 26.2miles, I didn't intend to run that distance but I was enjoying myself so much I just kept on running. I thought I should do a little bit extra as I wasn't running at the event, I would like to thanks you all for sponsoring me. Much appreciated!

On 15th March 2020 I'm going to (hopefully) run the Bath Half for a fourth time, a few years ago I ran it for Wessex MS and in 2020 I'm going to do it for them again. Wessex MS is Warminster based charity and provides an invaluable service to sufferers of MS (and other illness) and all those affected by this illness. I myself have been there and had the Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy which has so far helped my symptoms, but that's not all they do though. Check out below to see what other treatments these amazing people can provide.
Just to give you a bit of background about the Wessex MS Therapy Centre, they are a self-funded registered charity, providing therapies, information and practical and emotional support for people with multiple sclerosis and other conditions, such as Cancer, sports injuries, ME and chronic fatigue among many other conditions. We offer physical therapies in a comfortable and friendly environment to aid symptom management, promoting and enabling independence to improve well-being and quality of life. We want all our members to enjoy each visit to the centre where we provide long term, individual support. We offer physiotherapy, reflexology, oxygen therapy, counselling, massage therapy, nutritional advice, pilates and yoga. https://www.wessexms.co.uk

About Bath Half Marathon 2020
The Bath Half Marathon – or the ‘Bath Half’ as it is affectionately known, is one of the longest established and most popular city centre road events in the UK. It is also the largest charity fundraising event in the South West region, raising over £2.25 million for charity in 2017 alone. The course itself is fast and flat making it suitable for all abilities – for beginners whose key objective is to complete the course, to more regular long-distance event runners, looking to beat their personal best time. It covers a two lap 13.1 mile (21.1km) traffic-free course straddling both sides of the River Avon. The race starts and finishes in Great Pulteney Street, in the heart of the World Heritage City of Bath.
