Guaranteed Charity Place


2020 Bristol 10k for £10k

Are you looking for a new challenge this year or maybe you just want to achieve a personal best along a beautiful 10k course?

We’re back in Bristol at the Bristol 10k and we want YOU to join our team.

Take on the Bristol 10k for Sands and raise vital funds to help support anyone affected by the death of a baby, improve bereavement care and fund research to save babies’ lives.

Why 10k for £10k?

£10k will help provide support to bereaved families in and around Bristol including local meetings, telephone support and remembrance events. It will enable Bristol Sands to work with Southmead Hospital and St Michael’s Hospital to maintain and improve their bereavement facilities and provide bereavement care training for healthcare professionals in the local area. Your support will help Bristol Sands make an impact locally, and reaching our £10k target will mean we can continue this work for another year and help support other Sands’ work. 

As a #TeamSands runner you’ll receive:

•    Sands running vest
•    Sands T-shirt to wear when fundraising
•    Fundraising support and fundraising materials to help you reach your fundraising goal 
•    The opportunity to join with other Sands runners in the Bristol area
•    Incredible support on race day from Bristol Sands which your friends and family can join too
•    A Sands marquee within the runners’ village, access to water and other refreshments. Come and celebrate your achievement and take your medal photo
•    A dedicated cheer point with the loudest cheers on race day!
