The Great Birmingham Half Marathon

The Great Birmingham Run is the second biggest half marathon in the UK. Around 27,000 runners of all abilities from across the UK and world took place in both the Great Birmingham Run and the Great Birmingham 10k last year.

The Great Birmingham Run will take runners from the iconic City Centre backdrop south towards the world famous cricketing arena of Edgbaston and on to Bournville, the home of Cadbury World. As well as the fantastic sights and support from the crowds there will be some upbeat musicians and bands to keep you going along the route.

Having crossed the finish line participants will be able to relax and meet up with friends and family in the event village in Centenary Square surrounded by its many famous buildings. There will be support along the whole course including drinks stations, cheering buses and bands on the run not to mention the encouragement of the thousands of supporters and spectators lining the route.
