The Great Bristol Run will be back in 2022 with 10k and half marathon events as well as the family-friendly Great Bristol Family Run.

The first Bristol half marathon took place in 1989 with 1,000 people joining - now there are over 10,000 people joining the event each year, some running for fitness and health while others run to raise money for charity.

The route for the 10k starts in the city going through the waterfront, crossing to go to Spike Island, through Wapping Wharf, looping around Queen Square and from there going to Redcliffe, Castle Park, the Old City and ending on Anchor Road.
