British Swimming National Centre at the University – will act as
official starter for the run, which will start at 2pm. Entrants can
sign up on the day.

Team Bath’s expert physiotherapists, nutritionists and sport
scientists will be on hand throughout the day to provide guidance,
advice and support for sustaining a healthy lifestyle.

Bath’s new arts complex, The Edge.

Dancer and choreographer Hannily Bendell will lead 30-minute ballet
fitness sessions from 1.30pm and 2.30pm, while dance artist Lisa May
