Birmingham Black Country Half Marathon
Jul 2 @ 8:00 am

The Birmingham Black Country Half Marathon is a unique point to point race along the canal towpaths between Wolverhampton City Centre and Brindley Place in Birmingham.

The race format is based on peoples predicted running time (seeded) in a time trial format with runners starting in waves between 08:00 – 12:00. The conditions underfoot vary from gravel tracks and un-kept trails to smooth pavement.

The race accommodates all capabilities. There are entries for “Elites” such as club runners or those serious about running and the “Socials” those that are also club runners but don’t take it too seriously, those who like a personal challenge or those running for another reason.

The route is largely flat with locks and bridges as the only inclines, the route includes the famous ‘Coseley Tunnel’ a 360 metre tunnel, a memorable feature of the scenic course. The route features floating drink stations (canal barges) every 3 miles offering runners water and electrolyte.

The finish line is in the heart of Brindley Place, Birmingham, all finishers will receive a bespoke finishers medal and a well stocked goody bag. Brindley Place boasts plenty of pubs and bars where you can refuel after the event and spend some time cheering in finishers.
