A beautiful half marathon course through the Forest of Dean. Taking place in the far reaches of GWAAC’s patch, this is a brilliant opportunity to take on the challenge of an off-road half marathon on well maintained forestry tracks. This Autumn Half Marathon is run in the Forest of Dean at the end of September. Using the same organization (but a different course) as the popular Spring event, this race follows a forest trails course with no road crossings. The course has some interesting hill challenges and offers a chance to experience the Forest with its late-summer leaf canopy.
Great Western Air Ambulance Charity is one of the busiest air ambulance services in the South West, serving a population of 2.1 million people. In 2021 we attended over 1,950 patients. By taking part in the this amazing event, you will not only have a brilliant race-day experience, you will also be supporting a local lifesaving service.
Our team of Critical Care Doctors and Specialist Paramedics are called to an average of five incidents a day, at least one of which will likely be a patient in cardiac arrest. From emergency caesareans to roadside amputations, blood transfusions to emergency anaesthetics, GWAAC’s crew bring the skill and equipment of the emergency department out to where it is most needed.
We are a charity funded by donations from the public. We receive no day to day government or national lottery funding. We couldn’t keep flying without people like you and without the ongoing support of the people we serve, so thank you!
