At the finish line at the Birmingham Great Run


The Simplyhealth Great Birmingham Run returns on Sunday 13 October giving people of all ages and abilities a chance to take part and challenge themselves. 

The action-packed event includes the famous Half Marathon race as well as a Mini and Junior Run. The Mini (ages 3-8) and Junior (ages 9-16) Runs gives kids the chance to experience their own finish line moment and wear their medals with pride just like the adults.

The Half Marathon route includes a mix of city centre landmarks near its New Street start-line, and takes in some of the most popular spots in South Birmingham. Along the route runners will enjoy a variety of motivational music on course including dhol drummers, jazz and modern pop, as well as amazing support from communities & groups.

Brand new for 2019 is the Brummy Army Cricket zone near the 10 mile mark where runners will relive England’s World Cup success as they pass Edgbaston, the world’s oldest Test cricket ground. Runners can expect roaring cricket supporters in full kit, famous cricket tunes & soundbites blasting out on speakers, cricketing hero cut-outs watching over the action, and more!

If you took part in the 2019 Simplyhealth Great Birmingham 10k in May, you will automatically receive a £10 discount off the half marathon entry fee to the half marathon.
