What you need to know about Running

Running is the world’s most accessible sport. Park runs, colour runs, 5k, 10k, half marathons, marathons and ultras — all you need is a pair of trainers and off you go. Running events are hugely popular on Let’s Do This and it’s a sociable sport, so get some friends involved and achieve something extraordinary.

If you’re starting small, the 5k and 10k events are great fun and definitely worth doing even if you’re training for a bigger challenge further down the line. Getting used to the atmosphere of an event is important. You’re so much more likely to hit a better time if there’s a crowd cheering you on, people in fancy dress and a big celebration at the finish line.

10k Races in Bristol July 2018

Booking Closed

10k is a great step up from our 5k events. Up the challenge and take part in a Race for Life 10k event. Walk, jog or run. Raise valuable funds for research. THIS IS BEATING CANCER.

The Bristol route is a 2 lap course which mostly follows the perimeter of The Downs. It is a fairly flat course with a mixed terrain which takes in amazing views of the Gorge and Suspension Bridge. There are lots of cheering points along the way and the whole event has a fantastic atmosphere which you'll really enjoy.

Dont forget to bring your friends and family along to support you. They can stroll around the stalls and activities, have a go on the bouncy castle, enjoy the refreshments on offer, and then listen to Heart while waiting to cheer you through the finish. Afterwards, you can stay, perhaps have a picnic in the park and reflect on your achievement and reason for taking part.

A truly special race that not only takes in many of Bath's beautiful attractions but also has the longest underground sections of any running race in the UK!

Cutting right under the city of Bath, the two tunnels offer a truly unique running experience. The Somerset & Dorset Railway closed in 1966 and until April 2013 the tunnels have been sealed and inaccessible. Thanks to the hard work and dedication of the Two Tunnels Group and Sustrans over 7 years, the two tunnels now have a new lease of life as a shared use path. The first tunnel; The Devonshire Tunnel is 408m long and the second Combe Down Tunnel is 1672m long. Both tunnels are well lit and well surfaced, and have recently been converted into a shared use path for the enjoyments of runners, walkers and cyclists looking to make the most of the city whilst remaining a flatter ground.

With a marathon, 3 different half marathons, 2 different 10kms, 5kms and 500m races there are events for all the family, and if they are not taking part, bring your friends and family to cheer you on; our start and finish will be in Brickfields Park in the middle of the city. A green park complete with children's playground and table tennis table, a great spot to sit and enjoy a picnic after the race.

The Bath route winds itself around the park, Royal Avenue, and surrounding areas. The terrain is varied but mostly on paved paths with some grass areas and a few hilly sections. Central and picturesque, this is a venue with ample space and opportunity for families to spectate and enjoy the wonderful atmosphere of Race for Life.

Dont forget to bring your friends and family along to support you. They can stroll around the stalls and activities we'll have - including refreshments, a bouncy castle, and facepainting - while listening to Heart FM as they wait to cheer you through the finish.
