More than 11,000 runners are taking part in the Bristol 10k road race.

The race, which started at 9.30am, takes runners along the Harbourside.

This is the fifth year the Bristol 10K has been held and Race Director, Georgette Van Hoof is impressed by how it's grown and become a main fixture in the city's sporting calendar: "Obviously the Bristol half marathon has been going for a long time, the Bristol 10K is still very much a new race. We got a massive 5,000 people in year one and we're now well over 11,000 so we're incredibly pleased everybody is keen to run it."

The fastest runner completed the course in under 30 minutes.
