Simplyhealth Great Bristol Family Run

The Simplyhealth Great Bristol Family Run returns to the city in 2017 and entries are now open.

The Family Run mile event takes place on Sunday 7 May, after the Simplyhealth Great Bristol 10k.

Children aged 3 years old and over can run, jog or walk with their families in the inclusive event at Bristol Harbourside. 

If you're aged 15 years old or over, join over 12,000 others at the 2017 Simplyhealth Great Bristol 10k which takes place on the same day.

The Grand Appeal

The Grand Appeal is celebrating its 21st anniversary this year and is raising money to fund new family accommodation at Bristol Children’s Hospital. The Family Mile is a perfect way to get involved while supporting sick children from all over the South West, and their families.
Whether you are already running the 10K and want to enjoy a final mile with your family and supporters by your side, you are brand new to running and want to take on a mile challenge, or you want to show your children how much fun being active can be, sign up to run the new Family Mile for The Grand Appeal!

All the money you raise will help us to provide parents and families with somewhere to stay so they’re always close to their little one’s bedside.

Wrong Trousers Fancy Dress

Experience 'A Grand Day Out' at the Simplyhealth Great Bristol Family Run by taking part in our Wrong Trousers fancy dress competition!

Inspired by Wallace and Gromit's Oscar-winning film, we're partnering with The Grand Appeal Children's Hospital Charity and want children and their families to don their wierdest, wackiest and most wonderful 'Wrong Trousers' at the event.

You can parade around in your pyjamas, shimmy along in sequins or have some fun in funky flares for the chance to win special on-the-spot prizes!

And don't worry mums and can get in on the fun too!

This Mum Runs

This Mum Runs is an inclusive, social running community whose mission is to help women feel happier and healthier.

With women leading such busy lives, filled with school runs, meetings, bedtime chaos and everything else in between, we understand that looking after their own health and well-being slips down the priority list.

We believe ‘Me time’ should not be relegated to locking yourself in the loo for five minutes to get some peace or enjoying a solo trip to the supermarket!

We offer both free runs and paid-for programmes, based around family friendly times. We aren’t about speed and Garmin watches, instead we focus on providing women with the opportunity to get out in the fresh air and enjoy some headspace and proper time to themselves.

So far, over 8000 Mums across Bristol and Bath have been inspired to get their trainers on and go out for a run with us and, most importantly, they’re sticking with it.

Members of the community will be taking part in both the Simplyhealth Great Bristol 10k and Family Mile event, so why not come and join us?

Why not join them on Sunday 7th May 2017?
