Go the distance in 2017!

Looking to get fit and help make a difference to special care babies? Join #TeamCotsforTots for the Simplyhealth Great Bristol 10K and Family Mile on Sunday 7th May 2017!

The Great Bristol 10K is a largely flat course suitable for runners of all abilities, and takes you on an exciting tour of Bristol’s Harbourside, passing under the famous Clifton Suspension Bridge. It's the perfect race for first-time competitors looking to take on an exciting new challenge for 2017, or if you're a seasoned athlete why not try to beat your personal best?

We're also excited to welcome back the Family Mile, which was a huge hit in 2016! Mums, dads, and little ones aged 3 and up can walk or run this special mile together after the main race, so get your family together for a grand day out! When you sign up and get sponsored for Cots for Tots you'll also be helping to support other families who need or may need the vital services at St Michael's Special Care baby Unit.

The Unit is the specialist neonatal centre for the whole South West, providing life-saving care to hundreds of sick and premature babies every year. Join #TeamCotsforTots today and show your support for these tiny patients and their families!
