Great Bristol 10k

The Great Bristol 10k, previously known as the runbristol 10k, is an exciting new addition to the Great Run Series.

Largely flat, the route shares much of its course with the half marathon, starting and finishing in Bristol's historic Harbourside, it takes in the stunning Avon Gorge and twice passes under Brunel's famous Clifton suspension bridge.

Whatever your reason for running, maybe you are looking for a fitness challenge or have been inspired to raise money for your chosen charity, this is the event for you! Why not bring the family and make a weekend of it.

Later in the year, if you're looking to up your distance, we will be heading back to the city for the Great Bristol Half Marathon on Sunday 25 September.

The Course

The course will take you under the iconic Clifton Suspension Bridge with spectacular views along the Avon Gorge before entering the city centre. With an electric atmosphere and famous Bristol welcome, your journey to the finish line will be truly special!  

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.

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.
