Bristol Half Marathon 2015
The Bristol half marathon was first held in 1989 when it attracted 1,000 runners. By 2010 this had grown to over 16,000 and the event is now firmly established on the national calender with a developing international reputation. The race celebrated it's silver anniversary in 2013 and is now one of Bristol’s most prestigious sporting events.
In 2001 the City of Bristol hosted the 10th IAAF World Half Marathon Championships alongside the Bristol Half Marathon and runners taking part were able to follow in the footsteps of British legend Paula Radcliffe and Haile Gebrselassie of Ethiopia. Thousands of people turned out to watch Paula cross the finish line in the record-breaking time of 66 minutes 47 seconds and Gebrselassie take first place in the men’s race with an impressive time of 60 minutes 3 seconds.
