Bristol’s much-loved running event will return to the city’s streets in 2022.The Great Bristol Run is an action-packed day of running, with the 10k and Half Marathon events taking place on the same day. Take your place and be part of the celebration.

About the race

For the second year, 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!

When is it happening?

The Great Bristol Run is on Sunday, 25 September 2022

How do I enter?

Secure your spot in the 10k or half marathon via the Great Bristol Run website and make your miles count.

“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”
