Will your squad go the distance?

Gather your friends, family and work mates together and join Birmingham St Mary's Hospice and St Basils on Saturday 22nd July for a brand new and challenging 5k relay run.

The first event of its kind in Birmingham, teams of 4-6 participants are challenged to run as many 5k laps around Cofton Park as possible starting at midday and finishing at 9pm. Do you and your squad have the stamina to keep going? There will be prizes for the team that goes the furthest distance, completes the fastest lap and a goody bag for the team that raises the most in sponsorship for these 2 amazing causes. Everyone will receive a commemorative sweat band, medal, bottled water and a well earned beer!

A great atmosphere is guaranteed in our festival area which will feature live music, entertainment, food and games for runners waiting their next turn and spectators to enjoy. Bring along a picnic blanket or pitch a mini tent and set up camp for the day with your friends and family who are welcome to join your squad and cheer your team along.

Your team registration fee covers the cost of hosting the event but it is sponsorship money that will make a huge difference to the participating charities. Therefore we ask that each team aims to raise a minimum of £100 in sponsorship (for a team of 6 that's just £16.66 each).
