Come and join us for 1 or 2 days of fun by the seaside!
The 401 Festival of Running is coming back for the 3rd year to the sunny town of Portishead on the North Somerset coast near Bristol. With amazing views over the Bristol Channel, out to Wales and of the Severn Bridge Crossings, watch as the ships pass within metres of the Events Village, such an amazing backdrop to what is fast becoming an event you dont want to miss.
With adult races including 5km, 10km, Half Marathon and our famous Festival Challenge (26.2 miles across the weekend!), plus 4 childrens races there is so much to choose from for the entire family to enjoy.
Enjoy good quality food and drink along with a FREE evening film in our events village just as the sun sets over the forest, this year it's The Goonies, a true classic!
Enjoy bespoke quality made bling (totally worth it!), along with the chance to buy a piece of our event merchandise all with a #bemoreeco twist.
Our events are designed to cater for everyone, no matter if you are a beginner or someone that likes to go flat out. Our events are made even more special because of our incredible volunteers who really add to the supportive and friendly atmosphere of the event across the weekend. Whether you are first or last over the finish line, youll be greeted by a smile and maybe even a hug. We want you to go away from this event with your confidence boosted and feeling great about yourself, because after all, thats what running is all about.
We cant wait to see you in August, its going to be epic!
