This is a great charity run in the South West of England which offers good 10K runners the opportunity of a personal best. The race takes you over the Clifton Suspension Bridge and finishes up in Bristol’s historic Harbourside which is a must see for the charity runner.
About the race
The pre race atmosphere in Millennium Square is fantastic and really gets you excited about the race. Very enjoyable 10K, very flat and therefore very fast, with over 10,000 people on the day it will be one to remember. The support throughout Bristol will be very good apart from one or two small areas but beggars can’t be choosers! The last 3K is excellently planned out and you will see a really good level of charity and local support as you finish the race.
Ease of sponsorship
Being a 10K race you should be looking at anything from £300 upwards. You will need to look for lots of people to sponsor you smaller amounts. Try the £1 per kilometre fundraising trick!
Excellent support, huge numbers line the streets and are all very vocal. Good charity presence. Being a 10K you should be looking to raise £300 and upwards. Check out the run for charity fundraising A to Z for some great ideas to help you reach your target.
Not to difficult, use a straight 10K training plan so give yourself at least 12 weeks to train.
Quality of race organisers
The information provided about the race is really well thought out, charities should not need to do too much extra apart from provide you with their sponsorship pack. Fantastically well organised on the day and no stone left unturned. Not always thinking about the charity runner but other than that very impressive. Great goody bags and medals.
