There are just 6 weeks to go until the Midland's biggest half marathon - the Bupa Great Birmingham Run on Sunday, 19 October. Formerly known as the Birmingham Half Marathon the event attracts a massive 20,000 field and a memorable course includes the Bullring, the Cadbury's factory in Bournville and Edgbaston cricket ground. Thousands of supporters turn out to cheer finishers across the line on Broad Street in the heart of the city centre.
Specialist retailer Up and Running is planning a special Runner's MOT Test event at their Temple Street store on Friday 19 September (12.00-4.00pm) to ensure that Great Birmingham runners are in the best shape for their big day. Experts from Brooks (shoes and clothing) and Moving Comfort (specialist bra fitting) as well as Up and Running staff will be on hand to provide product information and advice.
