Great Birmingham Run Half Marathon
(£250.00 minimum sponsorship)
Run the Simplyhealth Great Birmingham Run Half Marathon and help beat blood cancer
The Simplyhealth Great Birmingham Run Half Marathon is the UK's second biggest event of its kind and leads runners past several of the city's famous landmarks. The route begins in the city centre, near Millennium Point and Thinktank, and heads through Digbeth and Cannon Park. Runners will reach Bournville, the model village best known for its connections to Cadbury, before the route leads them back to the city centre for the finish line.
Live bands will add to the party atmosphere and enthusiastic supporters will be positioned at cheer points along the route. After passing the finish line, runners can relax with family and friends and enjoy a party atmosphere in the event village.
