Great Birmingham Run

The Great Birmingham Run was established in 2008 and soon became an important calendar day for Birmingham the home of the mighty Black Sabbath. It is very well supported by the local community who line the streets to roar on the participants with their encouraging chants which even the great Ozzy would be proud of.

The course runs through the heart of Birmingham, where you will run past some of the most famous sites of the city including the Bullring, Edgbaston Cricket Ground and Cadbury World it then parallels the River Rea for part of its 13.1 miles. It crosses Cannon Hill Park and Calthorpe Park before finishing at Aston University.
