We’re delighted to confirm The Grand Appeal as the Official Partner of the AJ Bell Great Bristol Family Run again in 2023. The Grand Appeal is the dedicated Bristol Children’s Hospital charity, helping sick children and their families by funding life-saving equipment, family accommodation, specialist staff, and much more.
As part of our partnership with Wallace & Gromit’s Grand Appeal, we are celebrating the 30th anniversary of the ‘Wrong Trousers’ Wallace and Gromit film by encouraging runners (adults included!) to dress in their own ‘wrong trousers’ for the event. Wallace and Gromit will at the start line to cheer everyone on as they set off towards the 1-mile course, and you can get your photo taken with the famous duo afterwards.
We can’t wait to see your fancy dress this year!
Inspired by our partnership with The Grand Appeal and the 30th anniversary of Wallace & Gromit’s Wrong Trousers film, we’re asking runners – big and small – to wear their ‘wrong trousers’ for the run.
Dig out some of your weirdest and wackiest legwear (or get crafty and make your own), and we’ll see you at the start line!
