We welcome all abilities to be part of the fun and raise money as part of our biggest ever running team on the 13th September.
Following the success of our status as Official National Charity of the Bristol Half Marathon in 2014, we want to recruit our biggest running team ever in 2015 and take on the 13.1 mile course whilst helping people living with cancer.This is Bristol’s most prestigious sporting event and will see around 15,000 runners take part. Join us for a day you'll never forget!

About the race
The Bristol Half Marathon takes place on the 13th September 2015. The race starts on the historic Harbourside before heading out along the Portway passing underneath the famous Clifton Suspension Bridge. The second half of the race takes you all around the city centre where the streets are lined with fans cheering you right across the finish line. With a flat course and an atmosphere that will motivate and carry you through the 13.1 miles, the event is perfect for your first half marathon or beating your personal best!

How much do I have to raise?
You can get a guaranteed place for just £38. We would love each runner to raise minimum of £180 as this would fund one person with cancer to attend our Living Well course. These courses demonstrate how diet, exercise and lifestyle changes can make a huge difference to living with the impact of cancer. If you have your own place we simply ask you to raise as much as you can!
