Run 10K or a Half Marathon for Above and Beyond, between the sea and the sky, over the iconic Severn Bridge 

The Severn Bridge 10K or Half Marathon is a unique race that takes place on the closed M48. It is a fast, flat race over the Severn Bridge and is suitable for people of all abilities.

The Half Marathon will be based on 2 laps of the 10k route, with the additional 1097.5 metres made up from a short out and back section. The run would therefore be entirely on the bridge structure.

The race went ahead last year with Covid measures in place which had lots of positive feedback on how safe runners felt and how easy it was to stay a good distance from others.
