History of the Bristol 10K

The first Bristol 10k took place in 2008 and proved enormously popular with 5,000 runners signing up to take part. The race is expected to double in size in 2009 having quickly established itself as the second major road race for the city of Bristol.

The 2008 race was started by the Bristol running legend Nick Rose with guest of honour Kenyan Kip Keino presenting the prizes.

British athletes triumphed as they made a clean sweep of the top 3 women’s prizes, with Phil Nicholls securing 2nd place in the men’s race.

In a very close race Wendy Nicholls (34:08, Cirencester) beat Louise Damen (34:09, Winchester & District) and Claire Martin (34:15, Telford).

Fellow Brit Phil Nicholls (29:36, Tipton Harriers) came second to Jean Ndayasenga who was overall winner (29:09, Burundi/Birchfield) beating Zak Kihara (29:51, Kenya/Birchfield) into 3rd place.
