Open to runners of all levels and experience once you’ve joined our team we will provide you with training and fundraising support along the way. Our support package includes:

  • Your exclusive Birmingham St Mary’s Hospice running vest
  • Personalised iron-on letters for your running vest
  • Unlimited support from a dedicated Fundraising team member
  • Ongoing training information and advice via our free online training zone
  • A dedicated cheering point along the course

Register below to get your free place and save yourself £36 today. We ask each free place runner to pledge to raise a minimum of £250 sponsorship. To reduce the number of runners who fail to raise any sponsorship after claiming a free place and causing a loss to the Hospice, we ask that you create a JustGiving page and raise at least £30 sponsorship before we can release your place. If you have any questions, please contact us at [email protected] 

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.

You'll be entered into our free prize draw for some running goodies when you register!

For every £25 sponsorship raised, you'll automatically receive an additional entry into the draw.
