WHAT'S IT ALL ABOUT?


Our Portishead Festival of Running showcases the best of what running and community are all about!

A 2-day Running Festival, open to all ages and all abilities in the stunning town of Portishead on the coast of North Somerset.

Races include a 5km, 10km, and a Half Marathon plus an additional 6.1km for those that want to take part in our 'Festival Challenge' and complete a marathon distance over the weekend. Kids are well cared for as well with four individual races across the two days.

Not only does our event include running, but we also pride ourselves on our 401 Events Village which includes local organic food vendors a full stocked pop-up bar and a big screen Film Festival called 'Film on The Point' on Saturday evening.

Check out our video and enjoy good old fashioned family time, in a fun and supportive environment.

WANT TO DO THE EVENT VIRTUALLY?


Can't make the event? Don't feel confident enough to take part just yet? Are you away when the event is on? Or is it just too far or too expensive to get to us?

Whatever your reason may be, you can still take part. We have opened up the 5km, 10km, and Half Marathon as virtual options, meaning you can do this at you own pace in your own time.

Our Portishead Festival of Running 2019 Virtual events will run between Saturday 24th August and Sunday 8th September so you have a whole two weeks to complete whichever distance/s you pick! All other race distances and challenges are only available at the LIVE event in August.
