Bridgwater Bolt 10k

Bridgwater Bolt Cancelled


Due to the current situation with COVID-19 and social distancing practice, and in the interest of everyone’s health and safety, it is with regret that we feel we have little option but to cancel the Bridgwater Bolt 10k and Junior 1k. Refunds will be offered and all runners will be contacted.

This is a predominantly flat route through the villages of Chilton Trinity and Wembdon with a nice mix of urban and country scenery - just a couple of hills to contend with! Beautiful views of the Quantock Hills and Somerset Levels add to the attraction of this exciting race.

We expect entries to sell out as per the past few years so please book in advance to avoid disappointment.

Runners of all abilities are welcome at the event which starts at 10.00am at Trinity Sports & Leisure, where you will have use of the changing rooms, showers, toilets, swimming pool and cafe.

An event for the whole family

We know it can seem a long time for spectators to wait, especially the youngest members of the family, so we will have activities for all ages including our popular 1k fun run (£2.50 entry includes medal and free swim) family swim session and refreshments. Or why not sit back and relax with a hot drink and snack in our poolside cafe.
