Birmingham Running Festival 5k, 10k & Half Marathon
Come and join us for the new Birmingham Running Festival at the wonderful Sutton Park in Sutton Coldfield. With 5k, 10k and Half Marathon distances, there is an option for everyone, providing the perfect opportunity for a fun morning out running with friends and family!
Previously the home of the National Road Relays, you will be running on the paths once pounded by Sir Mo Farah, Andy Vernon and many more of our GB greats, through the 2,400 acre National Nature Reserve.
Each mile will be accurately marked out and we have plenty of helpers to keep you quite literally on track and encourage you on your way to that chequered flag finish.
