The half-marathon will take place on Sunday October 11 this year.
This year’s event has a brand new route with the race starting and finishing in Birmingham city centre at Centenary Square. The meeting point/kit drop off point for the BHM will be the NIA main arena, with adjacent parking and the start a 120 metres away, simplifying the arrangements for runners this year.
The route will be a much flatter and faster course than last year and will take in some of the city’s major attractions and the variety that Birmingham has to offer. Part of the city’s heritage will be on view to the runners as the route takes in the Birmingham Town Hall, Cannon Hill Park, Cadbury World and Selly Manor, the fourteenth century home of the Cadbury family. Runners will also see some of the major landmarks of the city centre including the Birmingham University, Bullring Shopping Centre and the world renowned Symphony Hall.
The organisers claim to be consulting with residents to try to minimise the impact of the race and create a safe environment for runners. If you have comments or suggestions to make let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will pass them on.
