Great Bristol Half Marathon: £44pp

The Great Bristol Half Marathon is one of the most anticipated events of the year for Bristolians. People travel from all over the city and beyond to take part in this stunningly scenic route and bask in the friendly atmosphere. 

Half marathon runners will experience the vibrant, colourful waterfront as you run across the harbourside and up through the naturally beautiful Avon Gorge. You’ll also get to experience the exhilarating feeling of running under the famous landmark, Clifton Suspension Bridge – a perspective most people don’t get to see it from.

Your route then joins 10k runners at Spike Island – so you can always get together with friends who aren’t quite feeling up to the 21km half marathon – and run the rest of the route together.

Great Bristol 10k: £34pp

The Great Bristol Run 10k is a great introduction to long-distance running. You don’t need to be a pro to take part, either! There is no time limit, so you can take it at your own pace.  

In the 10k, you run through the city of Bristol, experiencing it in a whole new light. You’ll run across the harbourside, through historic Castle Park and across the Old City. At Spike Island, you will also be joined by half marathon runners.

Kiddies love this one and it gives them a fantastic sense of participation and teamwork. 

The run is open to everyone over 3, and 3–8-year-olds must be accompanied.
