Course Details

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 heading along Prince Street and the Centre, finally 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.

    A fantastic event for a first 10k. Great sponsors, super atmosphere and a well communicated and planned event. Can’t wait to try the half marathon.
  • Did the 10k in 2019

    Event was really well organised, and I loved running the course. I particularly liked the musicians who really lifted spirits! The massage at the end was hugely appreciated - no aches or pains the following day
  • Did the 10k in 2019

    Fantastic event, really well organised, nice flat course, easy access with park and rides, one of my favourite events
  • Did the 10k in 2019

    Really well organised. Used park and ride as suggested, which was excellent. Course well marked out and great marshals. Loved the music round the course, it helped to keep us running. The only advice I would give is order a smaller tshirt than normal, as they come up big!!
  • Did the 10k in 2017

    The iconic run in Bristol (along with the Great Bristol Half Marathon) and one not to be missed if you want to see and feel the cityscape. Being a busy race you start in waves, with the racing snakes heading out early to beat the crowds. Thankfully, with the route taking you out and back along the Portway (and under the iconic Brunel Suspension Bridge) you'll see them flying back the other way - just the added motivation you need. The route then takes you back into the city, along the river Avon and into the centre for a grand finish. The route isn't lined with support the whole way around (as the Portway isn't wide enough) but the crowds are epic when they're there. The course is also relatively flat with some very minor, steady inclines. One for the to do list!

    Bristol 10k had a fabulous atmosphere. I’ve done a lot of 10k’s but this organisation of this one was amazing on such a large scale. The music, the village, the waves. It will be me I’ll do again. 5 stars 🌟

    A classic that is growing in popularity. The drummers and crowd support give you a great boost. Been sunny for the second year in a row which helped make it extra special and enjoyable
