We’ve set up a Facebook page especially for Race for Life Bristol, and will be updating it will all your need-to-know information. Make sure you don’t miss out by joining the page.

The course

The route mostly follows the Perimeter of The Downs. A fairly flat course with a mixed terrain, which takes in views of the Gorge and Suspension bridge, there are lots of cheering points along the way and the whole event has a fantastic atmosphere.

Meeting point

The start line is on The Downs just off Stoke Road and Ladies Mile.

On the day

Don’t forget to bring your friends and family along to support you. They can stroll around the many stalls on site while waiting to cheer you through the finish.
