A great experience that must be tried by anyone who likes to run! Fast & flat, it's ideal for achieving that p.b.! Great views of the city as we pass under Brunel's world famous Suspension Bridge and then back along the Portway and back in towards the centre from the other side of the river. One of my favourite 10k courses and I look forward to returning next year. But not before experiencing the Bristol half next month!

This was my first 10k. The support from the crowds really helped. I ran another 10k a week later with hardly any support and really struggled. They keep you going at all times.It was well organised, and the massage tent afterwards was most welcome as my legs nearly gave up. Stewards were brilliant and the overall atmosphere was amazing.

Great race, my first in almost 6 years. Incredible atmosphere and the crowds really keep you going. Thought the Portway section would be a bit boring, but it was actually my favourite part. Can't wait to run it again next year

I've been doing the Bristol 10k most years since 2011 (unless it clashes with a triathlon). One my favourite events to participate in!!! Very well organised and with so many people it has to be!!! Always recommending others to give it a go!

Overall I enjoyed the Bristol 10K. Only thing I thought could've been better was ensuring everyone got to fo a warm up, not just the first wave of runners. Loved the atmosphere and the various types of music around the course.
