Bestinau got that-
More than 13,000 people took to the city’s streets to take part in the Great Birmingham Run 2022. The skies were grey but the atmosphere was ‘full of joy’ as people cheered each other on as they ran in aid of charity or for their own personal fitness goals.
For the first time, both the 10k event and the half marathon were held on the same day. There were two events for children too.
It meant that whether you are a regular runner looking to smash your personal best time, or a newbie fancying a bit of extra exercise and an opportunity to rise to a fresh challenge, there was something for all.
