Birmingham Black Country Half Marathon

Join us on Birmingham’s canals to #FundTheFight with a half marathon

The Birmingham Black Country Half Marathon is a Point to Point Half Marathon along the canal path between Wolverhampton and Birmingham.

This fabulous canal Half Marathon is set in a time trial format with runners starting in waves and running along a scenic canal path that includes the ‘Coseley Tunnel’.

Whether you are a serious, elite runner or running this as a challenge/ fun event, there are options for you especially as the route is largely flat with locks and bridges as the only inclines.

With floating drink stations (canal barges) every 3 miles and a finish line in the heart of Brindley Place, Birmingham, you’ll be looked after.
