The Simplyhealth Great Bristol 10k
Spring is fast approaching, and as the days finally get longer, hopefully the urge to hibernate is starting to fade away. If January resolutions already seem like a distant memory, and you just can’t face one more sweaty spinning class, step outside and take a deep breath of fresh air…
If you need the motivation to get out and get active, now is the time to set yourself the goal of the Simplyhealth Great Bristol 10k, which takes place on Sunday 7 May 2017.
The official charity partner of the Family Mile is the Grand Appeal at Bristol Children’s Hospital and those taking part will be encouraged to fundraise for this popular local cause.
12,500 runners are expected to take on the 10k course, which makes the most of the city’s picturesque backdrop. 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.
Whether you’re running to fundraise for a cause close to your heart, get fit, make new friends or conquer a personal challenge, do it at the Great Bristol 10k! The event is not until May, so plenty of time to sign up and train.
