Great Birmingham Run

Join us

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

How do I get a place?

There are two ways to get yourself signed up for the Great Birmingham Run 2019:

Secure a charity place!

We would love to have you on the team. We ask that you pledge to raise a minimum sponsorship of £250 for your charity place, and there is a £25 registration fee. (The registration fee is payable to Macmillan Cancer Support Trading Limited which is wholly owned subsidiary of Macmillan Cancer Support. Macmillan Cancer Support Trading Limited donates 100% of its profits to Macmillan Cancer Support each year)

To apply, simply click the ‘Get a place’ button and complete our online application form.

Get your own place

Public entry for the Great Birmingham Run is now open at the official race website. If you are successful in securing a place then we would love to have you running for Team Macmillan. Click the ‘I have my own place’ button to join the team. There’s no minimum sponsorship, just raise as much as you can!

What do I get as part of #TeamMacmillan?

As part of Team Macmillan, we’ll make sure you have:

  • Our brand new fundraising pack, access to our online training zone and loads of fundraising tips and tricks.
  • Your free Team Macmillan technical running vest or t-shirt, plus iron on letters to customise your kit.
  • Newsletters to keep you up to date with Great Birmingham Run news and activities.
  • And of course... the loudest and most supportive cheerers on the course!

Most importantly we will provide you with a reason to put in those months of training and fundraising, because you know that your efforts are going towards improving the lives of people living with cancer in the UK today.

You must be 17 or over on the day of the event in order to run.

Please make sure you have read our Terms and Conditions before signing up.

If you have any questions, email us at running@macmillan.org.uk or call on 0300 100 0200.
