Royal Sutton Fun Run 2023

Be part of this year’s 40th Royal Sutton Fun Run with more than 5,000 runners

The Royal Sutton Fun Run event happened on Sunday 4th June 2023. If you are looking to Take on a Challenge, visit our calendar of events here.

The Royal Sutton Fun Run is a fantastic opportunity to walk, jog or run 8.5 miles of smiles…and we’d like you to do it for Brain Tumour Research.

More than 5,000 participants take part in this 8.5 mile challenging  fun run. The event begins with a climb out of Royal Sutton Coldfield town centre, through Sutton Park (Europe’s largest urban park) winding up to the Jamboree Stone (site of the 1957 World Scout Jamboree), before finishing back in the town centre.

You can walk, jog or run the event. Dressing up and silliness is strongly encouraged!

Dogs are permitted but need to be registered at £6 with the dogs having their own official number, timing tag and commemorative medal for completing the course.

Our Fundraising Group, Brainstorm, is creating its own Pink Mad Hatters team and would love you to join them!
