Great Birmingham Run 10K

If music is your motivator, the Simplyhealth Great Birmingham 10k is the perfect event for you as you Soak up the atmosphere and strut your stuff across the start line to the most popular tunes from the 70s, 80s, 90s, noughties or present day. You will cross that start line motivated by your favourite music for an electric party atmosphere that will keep you going as you walk, jog, run – or even dance – all the way from the start to the finish as you run through the heart of Birmingham on this 10k tour of the city.

The course has something for everyone and is suitable for all levels of ability, whether beginner or experienced. It features many of Birmingham's landmarks before the big buzz of a city centre finish... and the buzz doesn't get much bigger than Birmingham's! An undulating but quick course run on the closed roads of Birmingham.

LOW fundraising target of £150 and NO registration fee! 
We just ask you raise the first £25 before the end of April.
