Great Birmingham 10k – Sunday 30 April 2017 

The course has something for everyone and is suitable for all levels of ability, whether beginner or experienced. It features many of Birmingham’s landmarks before the big buzz of a city centre finish… and the buzz doesn’t get much bigger than Birmingham’s!

Starting on Jennens Rd, close to Millenium Point and Thinktank, the route passes Selfridges and the Bullring Shopping Centre before heading out along the Pershore Rd to the furthest turn point at Edgbaston Cricket Ground where the route takes in a lap of the stadium. The first 6km is generally flat, allowing plenty of time to warm up the legs in preparation for the slightly more challenging uphill section between 7km and 8km as the route heads back towards the city centre. The final flat and fast section is topped off with a downhill finish into Broad Street.
