Great race. If you are thinking of this book IBIS it's on the start line! The course loops up four miles and back on itself through the city centre. It's one of the bigger races in the UK and truly humbling to see deaf/blind and wheelchair users participating. Great crowed support! Don't forget, travel up to the Clifton Suspension bridge for your photo opportunity.

Brilliant event - organised, flat and fun. This was my first time doing this event and my 7th half marathon. The organisation was brilliant with a great spectator village - my wife and kids came along and had a great time whilst waiting for me to finish. No registration needed - just put number on and turn up. Very helpful and efficient. The course was great... flat with the very occasional small rise. Definitely a PB course. Although the sharp turns in the final 3-4 miles do hit the legs quite hard. Will definitely be returning to do this again!
