Great Bristol Half Marathon

Great Bristol Half Marathon


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.

10,000 runners will line up on the 10k & Half Marathon start lines on Anchor Road near Millennium Square, before setting off on a picturesque running tour of the city. The Half Marathon route remains similar to previous years, taking runners along the Portway and under the iconic Clifton suspension Bridge, before joining the 10k.

Renowned for being fast and flat, the Great Bristol Run offers a great opportunity to achieve a PB.  With crowds cheering, fellow runners spurring each other on, and training in the bank, race day always lends itself to mightily impressive achievements.

The Great Bristol Family Run kicks off the big day, ensuring the budding running stars of the future get their shot at glory.  Runners aged 3+ can enjoy the big event experience with music & encouragement the whole way round, and a very special medal at the finish.
