Event Info

The Great Bristol Run will be an action-packed weekend of running. For the first time the 10k and Half Marathon events will take place on the same day, along with the Junior event. The 10k and Half Marathon will showcase the best of Bristol, with cheering crowds and our famous entertainment zones providing the soundtrack to your run. The route takes in the vibrant waterfront, follows the beautiful Avon Gorge, and passes iconic landmarks such as the Clifton Suspension Bridge.

We understand that there may be uncertainty over what is and isn’t going to be possible this year, but we want to give you the confidence to book your place knowing exactly what will happen if we can’t deliver the event as planned, or if you are personally effected by the pandemic.

In the scenario of a 2021 event date change or cancellation by us and for whatever reason, all entrants (including 2020 rollovers) will be automatically deferred into the subsequent staging of the event.

You're in Safe
Hands
