Overview

Want to do a Half Marathon or 10k with a difference! With stunning views and interest throughout. Look no further. The 'old' bridge is an iconic landmark - it's a unique and exhilarating place to run - open to the elements on all sides and with fantastic views, you are literally running between sea and sky! It starts on the closed M48 carriageway and runners have the unique opportunity to run across the bridge on the motorway itself. The bridge will be closed to traffic for the duration of the event on a Bank Holiday Sunday - apparently one of the quietest traffic times for the bridge. We will once again have a 10k option - it runs entirely on the bridge - half of which is on the closed M48. Our chosen charities - St Davids Hospice Care (Newport) and St Peters Hospice (Bristol) aim to raise tens of thousands of pounds from the event and many individual runners will have the opportunity to raise funds for other charities close to their heart.

Great race over the Severn Bridge. Running between Wales and England is a pretty unique experience. Whilst it’s not completely flat, it’s a pretty fast route.  Very hot day so the efficiency of volunteers giving out water at the finish was very much appreciated. Go...Read full review

Overall a good race on a challenging course. Obviously the chance to run over the bridge is the big draw but beyond the bridge the route is still scenic. The marshalling on the course was great and everyone seemed well organised. My only two concerns were upon arrival the or...Read full review
