FacilitiesStaged in the town of Royal Sutton Coldfield, 8 miles north east of Birmingham. The Great Midlands Fun Run is NOT A RACE. It's a fun event for people of all ages and abilities. Disability or age is not a barrier. As an entrant you are encouraged to contribute towards the key objective - to provide financial support to charities and voluntary organisations, preferably across the Midlands - by collecting sponsorship money for a charity, voluntary organisation or community interest group of your choice. As a direct result of your endeavours, this financial support will directly improve the quality of life for those who live with physical, learning or emotional disability. Everyone regardless of age of ability participates across the same 8.5 mile course starting and finishing in Royal Sutton Coldfield town centre taking in approximately 4 miles of Europe's largest urban park - Sutton Park.
