The Grand Run is go!
We know how many of you have taken up running during the pandemic. That’s why we’re inviting you to take part in the Grand Run.
To celebrate the start of our brand-new virtual event, which is sponsored by Barcan+Kirby, we held a socially distanced launch by Bristol’s iconic Harbourside with some special guests in tow - including little Noah who is a patient at Bristol Children’s Hospital. After all, raising money for the children’s hospital and the patients it cares for is what it’s all about!
With so many sporting and fundraising events cancelled or postponed this year, there’s little opportunity to cross that all-important finish line, but that’s exactly what our budding athletes did thanks to our cracking #GrandRun banner.
Noah and his family know only too well the difference your fundraising will make.
Noah has to visit Bristol Children’s Hospital six days a week to receive life-saving dialysis. Joining the Grand Run means you can make life better for children like Noah.
The Grand Run is our first virtual event. It’s the perfect opportunity to keep fit and rediscover Bristol or your favourite running route. While it may not have the sound of a crowd to cheer you on or a finish line banner to run through, we’ll provide you with running tops, a cracking finishers medal and everything else you need to guarantee you complete your sponsored run feeling proud of what you’ve achieved.
Not sure where to start? Simply, choose your distance - 1.3 miles, 3.1 miles, or 13.1 miles and complete your sponsored run from Sunday 27 September to Friday 27 November. Anyone can take part, anywhere and at any time.
Step up for sick kids!
