My 4th time at Birmingham MoRun! And this year was just as good as the others. This is the one race a year I ALWAYS do. Such a fun course (love those rolling hills!), and great atmosphere. See you again next year!

Great run and a good cause. I would suggest some more sign posting as if you arrive in the smaller car parks there were no signs telling you where to find the start point. Other than that top notch!
