Join #TeamBCH and take on the iconic Simplyhealth Great Birmingham Half Marathon on 13 October.

The Simplyhealth Great Birmingham Run is now established as the second biggest half marathon in the UK, with our  city coming alive with thousands of runners pounding the streets as they tick off 13.1 miles, encouraged by on-course bands, entertainment and cheering crowds.

Since 2011 over 5,000 of you have taken part in this event for our hospital, raising a staggering £1.8million. This year you can make a difference too by joining #TeamBCH.

Thank you to all the amazing runners at the 2018 event who have already raised an incredible £70,000. This total is rising daily thanks to everyone who has sponsored them.
