Are you ready to take on the annual Simplyhealth Great Birmingham 10k? Put on your running shoes, don your St Mary's vest and join us as we take on the challenge as a team. #TeamStMarys

This musical event gives runners the choice of music themed starting waves enabling you to warm up to your favourite tunes. With tracks from the 70’s, 80’s, 90’s, 00’s or present day, you can strut your stuff to your chosen hits for an electric party atmosphere that will keep you going as you walk, jog, run – or even dance - all the way from the start to your well-deserved finisher’s pack! This year there is something for everyone whether you choose Wave 1 and aim to set a PB or Wave 6 and walk your way around the route at your own pace.

Join us and you can be part of the party for FREE. Take advantage of our free charity places and save yourself £28. All we ask is that you aim to raise a minimum of £200 in sponsorship.

In 2018, our incredible supporters raised over £38,000 collectively at the Great Birmingham 10K and the Great Birmingham Run. We need your help to make our team even bigger for 2019.

100% of the sponsorship money you raise will help to create a future where the best experience of living is available to everyone leading up to and at the end of life. You will be helping to ensure the best hospice care is available for all patients, families and carers across our community, wherever and whenever they need it.

Sign up today!

Gym members and staff across Birmingham and Sandwell are encouraged to create a team of runners from each gym to take on the Great Birmingham 10k. There will be prizes for the teams in this friendly competition and you can sign up below using one of our free token places or your own place.
