Charity and Sponsorship

The reason we are all working together to stage the Go Dad Run events is to get men thinking and talking about their health and also to raise funds for our five wonderful charity partners. Once you complete your registration you will have the opportunity to sponsor or support Prostate Cancer UK, Bowel Cancer UK, Orchid, CALM or St Peter's Hospice. Thank you!

Getting There

Getting there by public transport

Buses 358/359 from Bristol Bus Station and city centre serve Ashton Court. Alight at Clanage Road (Bower Ashton campus of UWE) and follow Kennel Lodge Road to the Ashton Court mansion.

Circular route 8/9 serves Clifton. Alight at Clifton Down and follow the ‘on foot’ directions above.

Getting there on foot

From the city centre, cross the river by Brunel Way, cross the railway line and turn right into Clanage Road, turn left into Kennel Lodge Road and follow it to the Ashton Court mansion.

From the Redland and Clifton areas, walk/jog across the Suspension Bridge, enter Ashton Court by the Leigh Woods gate and cut through the deer park to the mansion (approximately 2.5km from Clifton Down).

Getting there by road

There are three car parks in Ashton Court. The car parks open at 8am.
Parking costs £1.20 per vehicle per day. You can use your parking ticket in any of the Ashton Court car parks for that day. You can also return during the same day without paying again.

There is no parking charge for Blue Badge holders, motorcycles and scooters.

When charges apply:

Church Lodge car park (Dovecote): from 10am

Mansion House car park: from 9am

Clifton Lodge car park (Golf): from 6am

There is also limited on-street parking on Kennel Lodge Road, near the junction with Clanage Road.

Toilets

These will be situated close the Event Hub.

Bag Storage

This is located next to the registration tents at the Event Hub. Please note that space is limited so it is best to travel as lightly as possible.

Warm-up

The group warm up will commence approximately 20 minutes before the 5K is due to start.

The start

The 5K run will begin at 10.30 am so we will begin gathering you into the start area at 10.20 am. The run will finish where it began.

The 10K run will start from the same place, 10 minutes after the start of the 5K.

The finish

When you cross the finish line you’ll be handed your Sanlam Go Dad Run medal and your Big Yellow Goodie Bag. The first three home in each of the 5K and 10K will also be awarded special prizes.

Venue information

The run is a mix of tarmac service road and a wide stone/gravel path, and from the start to the turning point there is an ascent of around 100m.

This is mostly a steady climb, although two short stretches are quite steep but they are easily walkable and at the top there are great views of Bristol and the wider region followed by a 2.5km downhill run to the finish.

Please take care when running around the course as this is public land and local residents will be out and about.

Please always stay on the left unless otherwise guided. Drinks and snacks will be available at the finish line and there will be a waterstation on the course.
