Great Midlands Fun Run route

You begin the 8.5-mile route with an uphill climb of Mill Street out of Royal Sutton Coldfield town centre, passed the police and fire stations turning left onto Anchorage Road, passing the Town Hall at King Edward Square before descending down Upper Clifton Road and Clifton Road passed Wyndley Leisure Centre & Pool before turning right onto Monmouth Drive.

From here you enter Sutton Park [Europe’s largest urban park] at Boldmere Gate, winding you way for one mile up to the Jamboree Stone – site of the 1957 World Scout Jamboree – turning right towards Keepers Pool and then onto Town Gate drinks stage.

From here you pass Blackroot Pool then turn left at ‘Railway Turn’ before tackling ‘Cardiac Hill’ on your way out of Sutton Park at Four Oaks Gate.

The final 1.5 miles, along Four Oak Road & Lichfield Road to the finish in Royal Sutton Coldfield town centre, is reasonably level or downhill.

The route can be summarised as ‘challenging but great fun’.
