Great Bristol Run

September 19

Great Bristol Run
Bristol’s much-loved running events return to the city’s streets in 2021, and this year it’s all about the comeback! Take your place on the Great Bristol Run 10k or Half Marathon start line and be part of the celebration.

About the race
For the first time, the Bristol 10K and Bristol Half Marathon will be happening on the same day. You will head along Anchor Road and out along the Portway underneath the famous Clifton Suspension Bridge before heading back in via Cumberland Road and the historic harbour. This is a primarily flat route and the incredible atmosphere on the day makes it perfect for both new and seasoned runners!

The race organisers understand that there may be uncertainty over what is and isn’t going to be possible this year, but they want to give you the confidence to book your place knowing exactly what will happen if they can’t deliver the event as planned. In the scenario of a 2021 event date change or cancellation, all entrants (including 2020 rollovers) will be automatically deferred into the subsequent staging of the event.

When is it happening?
The Great Bristol Run is on 19th September 2021.

How do I enter?

Simply select us from the drop down list on either event and Great Runs will let us know that you have chosen us!

How much does it cost?
You’ll need to pay a registration fee to the race organisers and then we ask you raise whatever you can. Every penny you raise will enable us to continue our support. Together we can change life with cancer. For good.

Supporting you every step of the way…
Our runners are very important to us and we really want you to feel like part of the team. We will provide you with:

  • A professional running vest, personalised with your name
  • Our fundraising pack, including personalised sponsor forms
  • An invitation to visit our Centre to see the difference you’re making
  • Our cheerpoints on the day which will keep you going
  • Our friendly events team at the end of the phone, always available to answer your questions

Our volunteer cheerers on race day give our runners the huge boost that will help them complete their challenge.

To volunteer on one of our cheerpoints please email us with your name and telephone number.

“Not a mile went by without hearing, “go Tracy” and come on “Penny Brohn”. The sight of the purple flags as you approach each cheering point, with the happiest most enthusiastic supporters I  have ever experienced, children with their hands out for high fives oh and a jelly baby or two on offer.  Nerves and emotion at the beginning were replaced with empowerment and control I was so proud to wear that Penny Brohn running shirt, a big step in living well with cancer, thank you all”
