The Birmingham International Marathon is a brand new run for 2017. Be one of the first to ever cross this finish line by running for Little Hearts Matter!


15th October 2017



The run will start at Alexander Stadium, the home of British Athletics. The course will then take in a number of the city’s most iconic landmarks before finishing in the city centre.

If you’ve run a hundred marathons before or if you’re still thinking about your first 5K, this is a fantastic, once-in-a-lifetime chance to be part of the historic first-ever Birmingham International Marathon. You’ll also have the fantastic motivation of knowing your every step will help to support children with half a working heart!

Already have your own place?

If you’ve already bought your own place directly through the Birmingham International Marathon organisers, we’d still love to have you as part of our team! There is no sponsorship target for own place runners – just raise as much as you can. Let us know that you’ve signed up and we’ll send you a running vest and fundraising pack.
