Choose between a half marathon or 10k course to challenge yourselves on the crowd filled streets of Birmingham in this epic event. Great for first timers and experienced runners alike, the course winds through the UK’s second largest city and past its key landmarks.

Come for the unbeatable race day atmosphere or for that cherished finisher’s medal. There’s everything you’d expect from a Great Run – notorious start line hype, top on-route entertainment and an event village that feels more like an after party – but the carnival atmosphere and the passion and spirit of the runners is all Birmingham.

We can send you a fundraisers pack when you set up a sponsorship page. You can also make the event an #IronRun and carry an iron chain when you take part! But don't worry - its made of plastic. Just ask us to send one with your fundraising pack.

At Haemochromatosis UK we do not organise and run these events, but we are very grateful to the specialist companies that do so. It is important to read the full terms and conditions of the event you choose and we are only able to advise on the fundraising you do in aid of Haemochromatosis UK.


There are lots of open events to choose from. As well as the selection on our website, you can visit the following for more inspiration:
