Our 10km route takes you through leafy Edgbaston, Harborne and Selly Park. Fairy woodland creatures on stilts will welcome you and a magician, juggler and fire performer will provide some entrancing tricks to intrigue you along the walk. Our Ariel hoop performer will amaze with magical gravity defying tricks.

On this warm summer's evening you can enjoy ice-cream and treats as well as a glass of bubbles as you cross the finish line. Everyone will receive a commemorative medal and can stay on at the host venue for some musical entertainment and well deserved refreshments.

We promise you an enchanted Midsummer night to remember!
