Great Bristol Run 10K start 2022

Super early bird offer for Great Bristol Run

Act fast to bag a bargain to run 'the best in the South West'.

It was only just over a month ago when 15,000 runners took part in a revised and improved Great Bristol Run with a separate 10K race hosting the second Visually Impaired Runners 10K Challenge and the first Home Nations International Masters Challenge, plus the original and much-loved Half Marathon.

Entries are pouring in for the 2023 edition of the event that is dubbed 'the best in the South West' by race promoters Great Run Company. Now, we can't promise you 20% off your finishing time, but if you act fast you can bag a 20% saving on next year's entry with Great Bristol Run's super early bird offer. 

The Great Bristol Run 10K and Half Marathon races will both take place in the city that straddles the River Avon on Sunday 14th May. The early bird pricing means runners will receive a 20% reduction on their entry fees until Tuesday 1st November 2022 at 10am. 

The event will again start on Anchor Road and take runners past some of the city’s most famous landmarks and along the vibrant waterfront, before a grandstand finish back at  Millennium Square. 

Chief Executive of the Great Run Company, Paul Foster said: “We’re delighted to be able to stage the Great Bristol Run for the seventh time in 2023. The event is an incredible celebration of everything that is brilliant about Bristol and we’re looking forward to welcoming the community back to the start line next year. Whether you’re running for fun, to beat a PB, or raising money for a worthy cause, you can reach your goal at the Great Bristol Run.”

Entries for the Great Bristol Family Run taking place on the same day are also open. The popular kids' event gives budding runners their own big event experience, complete with a superb finisher’s medal. 

This year's 10K champions were M35 Tom Merson (Exmouth Harriers, 30:51) and W40 Helen Gaunt (Tonbridge AC, 35:41) while the half marathon victors were Jacob Brockmann (Thames Hare & Hounds, 1:10:40 PB) and Charlotte Taylor (Peterborough & Nene Valley, 1:15:46 PB).
