Birmingham Half Marathon

After running the Great North Run last year I decided I’d quite like to keep a modicum of fitness and run a few more events this year. The problem with the GNR is, as the name implies, it’s way up North. Also, due to the popularity of the event, it’s a nightmare trying to find a place to stay within a reasonable travelling distance to the race. Fortunately there are plans afoot for Birmingham to host it’s very own half marathon! Rumour has it that it should start this year, although I haven’t found much concrete information about the event other than a couple of newspaper articles and a “coming soon” website.

Well, until some more details emerge, I’m gonna train for the Great Midlands Fun Run, an 8.5 mile run around Sutton Park. This takes place on Sunday, the 1st of June. Registration is still open until the 12th of April, if you fancy joining in! Alternatively, if you fancy something a bit less serious, there’s always the Birmingham Hash! :-)
