Bristol Energy brings pedal power to Bristol 10K

As the city’s runners pound the streets in this Sunday’s Bristol 10K race, we’re inviting people to use their legs in a different way at our Bristol Energy Hub on the Harbourside – to create energy. 

In partnership with the Ape Project, a non-profit organisation that works with families across the city, Bristol Energy is offering pedal-powered smoothies for anyone willing to get cycling. No electricity needed.

The team will be based outside the Bristol Energy Hub on the waterfront from 8am – 1pm.

And for weary runners: if you show your medal, the Bristol Energy team will pedal it for you.

Peter Haigh, MD of Bristol Energy, said:

“We’re very proud to be Bristol-born, and our city centre hub is a place to come and celebrate the city’s positive energy. 

“Whether you’re running, supporting family and friends or just there to soak up the atmosphere: come down to the waterfront, meet the team and learn how to power machines with your feet – definitely easier than running the race!”

We’ll also be there supporting our own team of runners, who are raising money for Bristol Mind.

Nicola Rich, training co-ordinator at Bristol Mind, said:

“We work to promote wellbeing and recovery in all walks of life, and workplaces are often a great place to start the discussion.”

“We thank Bristol Energy for not only inviting us in to talk to staff about mental health, but for encouraging staff to run 10K this weekend to raise valuable funds for Bristol Mind. We wish them all the best"

The Bristol Energy Hub will also play host to a programme of family friendly events throughout the summer to inspire, educate and entertain.

Support our Bristol 10k team and Bristol Mind by sponsoring them.
