Event FAQs

We welcome anyone to run for #TeamBrumsHospice on their chosen date, but the organisers suggest the following minimum ages for each distance:

  • 5k – 11-years-old
  • 10k – 15-years-old
  • Half Marathon – 17-years-old

For all our charity place runners, you have pledged to raise a minimum sponsorship target dependent on the distance you are running:

5k – pledge to raise £100
10k – pledge to raise £185
Half Marathon – pledge to raise £285

For our own place runners in any distances, including the Junior race, you do not have a set fundraising target. Just remember, every single penny you raise make such an incredible difference to Birmingham Hospice. Pledge to raise £50 in return for a Birmingham Hospice running vest to wear on the day!

The routes for all distances are inside the beautiful Sutton Park, taking runners along the roads and windy paths in and around the park. Every kilometre will be accurately marked out and there will be plenty of helpers to keep you on track and cheer you on your way to the finish line. Each race involves laps around Sutton Park; there will be one lap for the 5k, two laps for the 10k and four laps for the Half Marathon.
