Bristol Half Marathon

Bristol is a beautiful city with an amazing vibe and this is only enhanced on race day!
Bristol Half MarathonNow in its 24th year, this established race puts you ‘in the zone’ on the Portway with the famous Clifton Suspension Bridge in the background. The atmosphere brings you round as you head back into the city, taking in the stunning sights of Bristol. It’s fast and flat and great for both novice and experienced runners.

CLIC Sargent is lucky enough to be the official charity for this fantastic race and would love for you to help make the last year of having this status the biggest and best yet.

Simon Harwood (pictured below) ran for CLIC Sargent in 2011. He said: “I have run for CLIC Sargent at a number of large events including the 2011 Bristol Half Marathon, and the spirit they generate amongst their runners is fantastic.

“During the event, knowing there are cheer points around the course is something that shouldn’t be underestimated as it keeps runners encouraged and motivated, as well as providing a meeting point for supporters to head for.

“Afterwards, there’s always a warm reception, and even a massage if you want one.

“All in all, if the CLIC Sargent team were not there on the day, the experience from a runner’s point of view would, in my opinion, be very different – to the point that it would influence my decision to take part at all.”

Join their fun, friendly and supportive team and help children and young people with cancer. When you’re flagging at the gym, give them a call and they’ll be there to spur you on. Lost for a fundraising idea? Drop them an email and they’ll give you a list. Race day nerves? Swing by their tent and they’ll (try to!) ease your worries. Basically, they’ll do their very best to make sure you have the best possible experience training for and running a half marathon can be.

A cancer diagnosis turns lives upside down but CLIC Sargent are there from the point of diagnosis right through providing all round care and support to the young person and their families until we aren’t needed anymore. Every day 10 children hear that they have cancer and right now CLIC Sargent can only help two out of every three of those diagnosed. With your help and support running for CLIC Sargent at this event we can go a huge way towards reaching each and every child.
