Race Information


This is heartbreaking news but UWE emailed today, with apologies, that they cannot let us use car park 25 for the race on Sunday after all. It is cancelled this year but we are looking for a home and a solution for 2016.

LATEST NEWS (18.09.15) - please check the NEWS page to read about the 2015 Reduced Race at UWE's Frenchay campus.

When to hold the race?

October 10-11th 2015. This date allows time for the race to be prepared by teams and by the organisers, whilst pre-existing summer events in the city and races in the BFPCR diary will by that time have taken place. It will still be warm enough and light enough but not too hot for competitors. Being outside holiday periods will help ensure that teams can run to full complement. The Junior Race will run 08.00-14.00 whilst the 24-Hour Race has a start/finish at 3pm.

Who's the winner?

The city is, for a start! And the charities and everybody who participates. The race itself will be monitored and adjudicated by electronic tagging as per BFPCR. The team with the most laps is the winner!

A sponsored trophy will be designed in competition and produced in Bristol Blue glass.

We'd love mainstream TV to broadcast the event from start to finish but, in case they don't, we want the race to be covered by cameras feeding into the website as a sort of YouTube outside broadcast (O.B.). A display screen by the Start to show current team positions, also fed into the website. Hopefully one of the cars will also carry a camera. This O.B. will enable the race to be followed 'live' anywhere in the world. At present the costings for this are not known. Mainstream news media could not ignore the event, though!

After the race

Another one in 2016, 2017... There's no reason why it shouldn't be an annual race again. The starting flag should be ceremonially waved by Bristol's Mayor or Lord Mayor; the trophy presented by a 'national' local personality, eg a comedian or sportsperson identified with the area.
