Run the Great Bristol Half Marathon for Bristol's NHS Heroes

Were you due to run the Great Bristol Half Marathon in 2020? If you chose to roll your place over to 2021, you could run to raise funds for Bristol city centre hospitals when the Bristol Half Marathon returns on Sunday 19 September, 2021.

The Bristol Half is a fast, flat and fun route for runners of all abilities. The course will take you under the iconic Clifton Suspension Bridge with stunning views of the Avon Gorge, around the Bristol Harbourside, before heading back into the city centre.
