The Great Midlands Fun Run is NOT A RACE. It's a fun event for people of all ages and abilities. Disability or age is not a barrier.
As an entrant you are encouraged to contribute towards the key objective - to provide financial support to charities and voluntary organisations, preferably across the Midlands - by collecting sponsorship money for a charity, voluntary organisation or community interest group of your choice.
As a direct result of your endeavours, this financial support will directly improve the quality of life for those who live with physical, learning or emotional disability.
The Fun Run is staged over an 8.5 mile all-tarmac route. The start is in Sutton Coldfield town centre from where you enter Sutton Park @ Boldmere Gate after 2.25 miles, negotiate approximately 4.5 miles in the park including 'Cardiac Hill', exit @ Four Oaks Gate after 6.75 miles before returning to the finish in the town centre. A route map can be found by visiting the Fun Run Info tab at the top of the home page.
Everyone who completes the course receives a specially minted commemorative medal - sponsored by Cookes Furniture.
