Help out on the day
Join us at The 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. 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!
We're the only charity fighting over 200 cancers including the one that matters most to you. Join our team and help raise money for our life-saving research.

We'll be there on the day, ready and waiting to scream your name with pride, so make sure you look out for all our cheering points along the course. Once you have finished, why not swing by to our post race reception where we can provide you with some food & drink and thank you in person.
