Midlands – Top Events Near You in 2020

It doesn’t matter if you’re more chocaholic than gym-lover, there’s an event for everyone in the Midlands this year!

Great Birmingham Run – 11.10.20

The Great Birmingham Run is now renowned as the 2nd largest half marathon in Britain. Cheered on by course bands, entertainment and lively crowds, Birmingham’s streets come alive with runners as they clock up 13.1 miles in October.

Chocolate 5k Obstacle Rush – TBC

Jump, climb, slide and run as you pursue a chocolatey prize in the award-winning Chocolate Fun Run.

Inspired by Birmingham St Mary’s Hospice’s ‘Chocolate 5k’ – which picked up bronze for best fun run at the national Running Awards – the course will see people tackle giant inflatables, as well as other fun obstacles, as they race to pick up tasty treats at the finish line. This one takes place in September at Cofton Park, Birmingham.

Great Midlands Fun Run – 31.05.20

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. This year’s will take place on Sunday 31st May in Sutton Coldfield

Velo Midlands and Birmingham – 28.06.20

The third edition of Velo Birmingham & Midlands is returning next year with a brand new summertime date – Sunday June 28!

Once again starting in the heart of Birmingham City Centre, the 100 mile route will take 18,000 riders of all abilities through the heart of Coventry where riders will cycle on the cobbled roads surrounding the historic Coventry Cathedral.

Tough Mudder Classic – 13 & 14.06.20

Tough Mudder Classic is an epic return to Tough Mudder’s roots, hitting Belvoir Castle in Grantham with a mix of fan-favourites and brand new innovations and 25 obstacles on the 8-mile course this June.

Running alone? Don’t worry! In 2020 all TM events will have designated solo runner waves so you can meet other lone wolves, form a muddy pack and get goal-crushing.

Even better, when you book your place through Give as you Live Online, Tough Mudder will donate 2.5% of your entry fee to your chosen charity to get your fundraising off to a great start!
