About
Choose between a half marathon or 10k course to challenge yourselves on the crowd filled streets of Birmingham in this epic event. Great for first timers and experienced runners alike, the course winds through the UK’s second largest city and past its key landmarks. Come for the unbeatable race day atmosphere or for that cherished finisher’s medal.
There’s everything you’d expect from a Great Run – notorious start line hype, top on-route entertainment and an event village that feels more like an after party – but the carnival atmosphere and the passion and spirit of the runners is all Birmingham.

Route information
Starting on Broad Street at Centenary Square, runners for both the 10k and half marathon distances will head for the city’s world-famous Jewellery Quarter. You will pass by a number of famous landmarks, including the Chamberlain Clock at Warstone Lane and Vyse Street, beautiful St Paul’s Square and a city-centre route that features the Mailbox, Grand Central at New Street station, St Martin’s Church, Southside and Digbeth.
Half-marathon participants will then head out of the city centre along Pershore Road, reaching Selly Park at eight miles and a return route that takes in glorious Cannon Hill Park and Edgbaston Stadium.
Both distances enjoy a grandstand finish at the Smithfield site near Bullring; home to the Commonwealth Games beach volleyball and basketball.
