Acorn Bristol take part in The Bristol Half Marathon

September 16, 2019

A few weeks ago some of the Bristol team took part in the Bristol Half Marathon on a rather warm and sunny September morning. An incredible 12,000 people took part in the event running the 13.1-mile route around the city from Hotwells through the Gorge, along the Harbourside and into the Centre. The Acorn team were running to raise funds for the Nicola Corry Support Foundation, a local charity that help families cope with cancer.

The team met at our Brandon Yard development on the Bristol’s Harbourside and finished at Broken Dock to enjoy a well-deserved drink post-race. Due to warm temperatures throughout the day hydration and endurance were key so everyone did an amazing job and finished in great time.

A huge congratulations to those who took part and a massive thank you to those who have kindly donated. The team still need your help in meeting their fundraising target so if you would like to donate you can do so here.

Well done everyone!
