We’re sorry to say that the Great Birmingham Run half marathon and 10k, due to take place on Sunday 10 October, has been postponed to next May, when organisers feel it can be held in a safe way that will maximise the enjoyment and experience for all participants.

We are so disappointed for you, our amazing supporters, many of whom have been training and fundraising for weeks already. The Great Birmingham Run half marathon and 10k is one of the biggest events on our fundraising calendar, and we were so excited for it to be back in 2021. Our supporters typically bring in around £150k for us and our sister hospital Birmingham Children's Hospital, so this fundraising income will be sorely missed.

That’s why we’re calling on you – our extended family – to once again show your support by joining one of our other many events instead. We know this has been and continues to be an extremely challenging time for everyone, so we thank all of you for supporting our patients and families, plus the work of our incredible NHS heroes through fundraising events like this.

Please visit our website to see our other events for 2021, or to take your running virtual, why not sign up to one of our Purple Pacers distances.

Sorry, this event is now sold out.
