The Simplyhealth Great Bristol Half Marathon returns to the city on Sunday 17 September.

50 per cent of entries have already been taken so SIGN UP NOW to secure your place on the start line!

The Simplyhealth Great Bristol half marathon returns in it’s second year as part of the Great run series.

The event comes with its own distinguished history. First staged in 1989 and known as the Bristol Half Marathon, the city centre run has become a long-held tradition in the national running calendar.

Over 10,000 runners every year make this a must do event with an atmosphere second to none.

The course

The course starts and finishes in Bristol's historic Harbourside. The scenic, sea-level route takes runners past the Harbourside, out and back along the Portway, through the stunning Avon Gorge, and twice under Brunel’s famous Clifton Suspension Bridge, along Cumberland Road then around the old city before returning to Anchor Road.
