Great Bristol 10K
Due to the COVID-19 outbreak we need to cancel the Great Bristol 10K. We know our runners may be disappointed, because we are too, we love delivering our events. But there's no option to stage the event as planned, or later in the year.
We will process a refund of entry fees to our runners and will be in touch with them by email. You can also view our FAQ page for more information.
Many of you would have been taking on this challenge for charity; your donation is still important to them, possibly even more so at this time. We know that the event day is only part of your the challenge and you’ve probably put in many miles towards your training already. We encourage you to recognise all the hard work you have already put in, celebrate what you have achieved so far and consider still passing on the money you have raised your chosen charity.
Thank you for your patience and continued support at this challenging time.

Anchor Road, Bristol, BS1 5DB
If ever there was a city with a story to tell, it’s Bristol. Enveloped in the hills of South West England, it has a distinctive identity that outrivals anywhere else. Grounded in roots from centuries past, passionate locals and spirited fans have helped carve out its character ever since.
It’s not hard to see why writers, film directors, artists, actors, scientists, musicians and architects have sought inspiration here.
Famed for its passionate character and its maritime history, and for the acres of parkland and sustainable approach that earned it European Green Capital status, Bristol has created its own distinctive identity.
Year-round festivals, award-winning cycle tracks, gastronomy of every flavour in rejuvenated warehouses and behind secret doorways, stunning cityscapes and awe-inspiring street art, Bristol doesn’t just buzz, it thumps.
Compact enough to get around on foot, yet big enough to boast an exciting line-up of entertainment, Bristol has much to offer.
Starting on Anchor Road near Millennium Square and Bristol Cathedral it runs parallel to the historic Bristol Harbour before continuing along Avon Gorge and taking in the iconic Clifton Suspension Bridge. The return route takes in Spike Island and the Cumberland Basin before passing the soaring Gothic St Mary Redcliffe, finishing on Anchor Road close to the start line so that runners can meet up with family and friends and make the most of the bars, restaurants and attractions at the Harbourside.
