Help out on the day
Join us at the The Simplyhealth Great Birmingham Run, the Midlands' leading half marathon, and take in some of the famous sights of Birmingham.
Starting in the city centre the run takes you past Edgbaston Cricket Ground and Cadbury World, before returning to finish on Broad Street. Taking place on the same day as the Birmingham International Marathon you will feel supported and energised the entire course. The atmosphere will be buzzing. You won’t want to miss out on this important day on the athletics calendar!
