Flying start at the Great Birmingham Run

Make a dash for Early Bird entry to Great Brum Run

This special offer is available for one week only.

The early bird catches the worm or in this case discounted entry to the 2023 Great Birmingham Run. The popular West Midlands run takes place on Sunday 7 May 2023 and, with four events to chose from, there is something for everyone young and old. 

It’s back to Brum for the Great Run around the UK’s second city, a bustling, buzzing place rich in history and culture with plenty to see and do. Sport is one of those activities with Birmingham hosting the 2022 Commonwealth Games from 28 July to 8 August. Thousands of people will descend on the city to watch top level sport and soak up the atmosphere. 

Organisers Great Run Company hopes for a similar turnout in 2023 with Event Director Anna Thompson saying: “We will once again welcome thousands of runners in the Midlands biggest and best running event.”

Both races start in the heart of Birmingham with runners following a closed road course with live music and enthusiastic support from spectators. Finishers are presented with a shiny new medal and goody bag and their chip timed results are available shortly afterwards. The exclusive t-shirt is an optional item to be purchased at time of entry.

Youngsters can be part of the fun with the Mini Great Birmingham Run (1.5K) for 3-8 year olds and the Junior Great Birmingham Run (2.5K) for 9-15 years old. These are ideal introductions to the world of running and they get a medal and goodies for their efforts. 

Save up to 20% on Early Bird entry. However, this is a time limited offer which is valid until 10am Tuesday 28 June so don’t leave it too late to enter.
