Take to the streets of Birmingham participate in this new themed city 10k.

There will be a musical theme for the run, and the music you listen to will depend on the wave that you select.  Wave 1 will be for those of you seeking a PB and won’t be themed. Wave 2 will be for those of you who love the music of today and you’ll be treated to all the current hits. Waves 3, 4 & 5 will be treated to anthems from the 90’s, 80’s and 70’s respectively. Finally Wave 6 will be for everyone out there who want to walk and take in the sights along the route.

Once you’ve completed the 10k why not take on a new challenge and sign up for the Great Birmingham Run in October. To find out more, please click here.

So join our team and party on the streets of Birmingham, with your help we will beat cancer sooner.
