The Course

Starting on Anchor Road near Millennium Square and Bristol Cathedral it runs parallel to the historic Bristol Harbour before continuing along Avon Gorge and taking in the iconic Clifton Suspension Bridge. The return route takes in Spike Island and the Cumberland Basin before passing the soaring Gothic St Mary Redcliffe, finishing on Anchor Road close to the start line so that runners can meet up with family and friends and make the most of the bars, restaurants and attractions at the Harbourside.

The Course

Event Location

If ever there was a city with a story to tell, it’s Bristol.  Enveloped in the hills of South West England, it has a distinctive identity that outrivals anywhere else. Grounded in roots from centuries past, passionate locals and spirited fans have helped carve out its character ever since.

It’s not hard to see why writers, film directors, artists, actors, scientists, musicians and architects have sought inspiration here.

Famed for its passionate character and its maritime history, and for the acres of parkland and sustainable approach that earned it European Green Capital status, Bristol has created its own distinctive identity.

Year-round festivals, award-winning cycle tracks, gastronomy of every flavour in rejuvenated warehouses and behind secret doorways, stunning cityscapes and awe-inspiring street art, Bristol doesn’t just buzz, it thumps.

Compact enough to get around on foot, yet big enough to boast an exciting line-up of entertainment, Bristol has much to offer.

About Bristol

Club discount

We’re delighted to offer a 20% block-purchase discount on the standard entry fee for members of clubs affiliated to England, Scottish or Welsh Athletics or the British Triathlon Federation. This offer is available to clubs purchasing 20 or more places in the event.

For the 2017 Simplyhealth Great Bristol 10K the discounted entry price is £23.20 per entry.

If your club would like to take up this offer please contact info@greatrun.org and include the following details: Club name and address, plus a name, email address and daytime phone number of the club ‘administrator’ of this offer. Finally, please add the number of entries the club wishes to purchase.

Please read the terms and conditions for this offer, general terms and conditions of entry into a Great Run event also apply.

 

Club discounts

A nominated representative of the club will be set up as an ‘administrator’ and will be granted access to the Great Run Token Management System.

Payment can be made by BACS, credit/debit card, or by cheque. Great Run Customer Services will be able to advise on the details of each payment option.

Once full payment has been received the entry ‘tokens’ will be released and the club administrator will be able to log onto the Great Run Token Management System and forward individual club colleagues an entry token via email. Each and every runner must click on the link and complete the online entry process in order to secure their entry. Receipt of the token email does not constitute a completed entry.

If athlete names are not yet confirmed, block bookings can be paid for in advance and tokens can be forwarded to individuals at a later date. Additional entries can be brought in multiples of 5 or more.

A benefit of this Token Management System is that you are able to actively manage your places up to four weeks before the event date. If a runner registers via an entry token but is subsequently unable to run, you can cancel their entry token and re-issue it to a replacement runner.  Please note this will only be possible up until the mail out of race packs has started.

The discount offer will close six weeks prior to the event date. After this point, and if the event is still open for entry, club runners will still be able to enter the race by paying the standard entry price.  Any tokens already bought can still be used up until the event entry deadline.

How will it be managed?
