The 10k route starts in the city centre and takes runners past the vibrant waterfront before crossing on to Spike Island, through Wapping Wharf and a loop around the beautiful Queen Square which marks the half way point – runners then cross over into Redcliffe before rounding the historical Castle Park on a final section through Old City, before the grandstand finish on Anchor Road.

The Half marathon route takes runners past the vibrant waterfront and out along the beautiful and peaceful Avon Gorge passing under the world famous Clifton Suspension Bridge, before joining the 10k route at Spike Island.

Every 15 minutes a child comes into care in the UK. Many will have suffered neglect or abuse; all will experience trauma and loss. Home for Good has an ambitious vision to find a home for every child, where they will be loved, nurtured, and enabled to thrive. We seek to inspire people into welcoming a vulnerable child into their family; to step forward to foster, adopt or become a supported lodgings host. We then journey with them every step of the way – from inspiration right through to post-placement. This involves equipping the local community to offer the wraparound support that they need. Join us in finding a home for every child that needs one.

St Peter’s Hospice is the Bristol area’s only adult Hospice. We care for local patients with life-limiting illnesses and their family members. Our care is provided free of charge at the point of service, however, it costs over £20,000 a day to provide all the incredible services that we do, in people’s homes, at our Hospice in Brentry, and across the greater Bristol community. We rely on our retails shops, gifts in wills and local people to fundraise for us. Running for your Hospice is a great way to support! For more information, visit our website.

We recognise that it takes more than medicine to meet the needs of cancer patients and their loved ones. For over 40 years we have provided people in Bristol with free practical, emotional and social support they need to improve their quality of life and to manage the fear and uncertainty that a cancer diagnosis may bring. People with cancer are feeling more isolated and afraid than ever before but with your help we can be there for them. By running and fundraising for us, you can ensure our services keep going. Together we can change life with cancer. For good.
