2021 information

Bristol’s much-loved running events return to the city’s streets in 2021, join Team Macmillan for the much awaited comeback! We will treat you like the superhero you are from the moment you sign up through to when you cross the finish line.

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 Bristol’s famous Clifton Suspension Bridge, along Cumberland Road then around the old city before returning to Anchor Road.
