Penny Brohn is looking for people to run in the Bristol 10k.


A charity urgently needs runners and volunteers to take part in a 10k race.

Penny Brohn UK, based in Pill, is encouraging as many people as possible to pound the pavements in its purple colours on May 13 in the Bristol 10k.

The 6.2-mile route heads down Anchor Road, along the Portway and underneath the city’s iconic Clifton Suspension Bridge before finishing in the historic harbour.

Penny Brohn’s events and community administrator Sarah Godfrey said: “The 10k is a brilliant chance to see beautiful Bristol while helping us continue to support people facing the disease.

“We will fully support you, with things including a personalised running vest, fundraising pack, regular training and fundraising e-newsletters, and a chance to visit us to see how your money helped.”

The charity also needs 60 volunteer marshals and cheerers to help the day run smoothly.
