Over 10,000 runners every year make this a must do event with an atmosphere second to none.

The most recent addition to the Great Run Series, the Great Bristol Half Marathon comes with its own distinguished history. First staged in 1989 and known as the Bristol Half Marathon, the city centre run has become a long-held tradition in the national running calendar.

The course starts and finishes in Bristol’s historic Harbourside. The scenic, sea-level route takes runners past the Harbourside, out and back along the Portway, through the stunning Avon Gorge, and twice under Brunel’s famous Clifton Suspension Bridge, along Cumberland Road then around the old city before returning to Anchor Road.

We are looking for runners to take part in the Bristol Half Marathon and help raise money towards Temwa’s Early Grade Literacy project.

Malawi is a country with very low literacy rates – recent estimates suggest that just 36% of adults and 21% of 5-9 year olds are literate. Note being able to read and write affects future educations and employment opportunities, trapping people in the poverty cycle.

Temwa’s Early Grade Literacy project aims to tackle this issue by developing reading and writing skills among primary school children in our catchment area in northern Malawi.

We do this through a range of activities such as providing shelves for schools to develop libraries, running spelling bee competitions between schools, and mock tests developed with teachers and Primary Education Advisors.

For more info or to register to take part, please get in touch with Jo Clarke on 07974998214/ jo.clarke@temwa.org
