Near the end of the day, 400 children with their families took part in the mile-long Family Run route around Millennium Square.

The Great Run Company’s Andy Graffin said: “It has been a fantastic day at the Simplyhealth Great Bristol 10k. Huge congratulations to everyone that took part and conquered their own personal goal today.

“We have worked closely with our partners to deliver the event and we’d like to say a big thank you to them and to the hundreds of local volunteers who have made the experience so memorable.

“The Simplyhealth Great Bristol 10k offers thousands of people the chance to be their greatest and experience their very own finish line moment.

“If anyone has been inspired by the efforts of participants today, there’s a chance for you to be a part of it again this year with the Simplyhealth Great Bristol Half Marathon in September!”
