Why walk for Bath Mind?
We are delighted to be participating in Bath Marches for the first time on Saturday 3rd September 2022!
As a local and independent mental health charity, Bath Mind are here to promote and nurture everyone’s mental health through the provision of information, activities, advice and support.
Taking part in Bath Marches’ 4, 9 or 15 mile walks is a fun and enjoyable way to support both your own AND your community’s mental health and wellbeing.
By joining our team you will help us provide support to everyone in Bath & North East Somerset who experiences mental distress or may be at risk of poor mental health.
What is Bath Marches?
The Bath Marches is a family-friendly (including dogs) walking event based in Bath. It will take place on Saturday 3rd September 2022, starting and finishing at Bath Recreation Ground in the beautiful Georgian city of Bath.

Who is it for?
This event is open to all:
- Friends, families, and individuals keen to take on the challenge

Whilst the route follows established footpaths, the terrain presents plenty of challenges and good levels of fitness will be required by all those taking part. Dogs are also welcome!
What will I receive?
As part of the Bath Mind team, you’ll receive:
- A FREE Bath Mind t-shirt

What are the different routes?
There are three different routes to choose from. To see maps of the three routes, head to the event website.
Do I need to fundraise?
We ask our walkers to make a minimum fundraising pledge of £75. Each and every penny of these vital funds will go directly to our mental health services in Bath & North East Somerset, giving people the support they need with their mental health and wellbeing.
We are here to help with every step towards your fundraising pledge, and can help with tips and suggestions too!
