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 an event.

For the 2016 Great Bristol 10K discounted entry price is £22.40 per entry.

If your club would like to take up this offer please contact putting Bristol 10K Club Offer in the subject field and include the following details: Club name and address, plus a name, email address and daytime phone number of one club member who will act as the club ‘administrator’ of this offer. Finally the number of entries the club wishes to purchase. Please read the terms and conditions for this offer, gerneral terms and conditions of entry into a Great Run event also apply.


Block 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 as tokens can be forwarded to individuals at a later date. Additional entries can be brought in multiples of 5 or more.

A benefit to this Token Management System is that you are able to manage your places up to four weeks before the event date. If a runner registers via an entry token but then is unable to run, you can cancel their entry token and issue it to a replacement runner.  This will not be possible once 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 only 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.
