Great Birmingham 10K in 2015 and 2016

Post image

For obvious reasons the Great Birmingham 10K is cancelled in May 2020 (or postponed). So lets look back to a small gallery of photos from 2015 and 2016. I think I probably watched it on Channel 5 before getting a bus to town, then seeing a bit of the fun runners, but missing most of the race. From Victoria Square and Digbeth.

2015

On Sunday 3rd May 2015, I had missed seeing any of the actual Great Birmingham 10K. I probably watched it on Channel 5 then caught a bus to town. Eventually got to Victoria Square and saw these fun runners who had finished the run going down the steps past the Town Hall and Alpha Tower. River and Youth at the time was dry, and this was before the Council planted flowers around the Floozi in the Jacuzzi.

2016

The next Great Birmingham 10K was on Sunday 1st May 2016 and I got to Digbeth in the morning on the bus. Usually due to the bus diversion you have to get off the bus early due to the road being closed. Around 11:15am I managed to catch these fun runners in Digbeth, passing Wolverley House.

These run runners in colourful tops passing Pause. A space to talk about life and real feelings. Caught a reflection of Selfridges in Smithfield House.

Passing Smithfield House in Digbeth then heading towards Moat Lane and Bradford Street. They were next going past South & City College Birmingham - Fusion (at the time this was Fusion 2).

I probably next walked past Selfridges but didn't see any more run runners and headed into town to get a coffee at Caffe Nero on the Bullring Link Bridge.

Great Birmingham Run 2019: runners on the Pershore Road in Edgbaston

Post image

For the October 2019 Great Birmingham Run, I decided to check out the section in Edgbaston. Headed up Edgbaston Road where I saw the runners. I followed them as far as Calthorpe Park. Runners dropping bottles, but then being picked up by cleaners. The run was cut short and didn't go into Cannon Hill Park or around Edgbaston Cricket Ground. So was 12.1 miles instead of 13.1.

The Great Birmingham Run didn't go into Cannon Hill Park or around Edgbaston Cricket Ground due to safety concerns. So the run was reduced to 12.1 miles according to some reports. Never the less they still were able to run up the Pershore Road!

BBC News Birmingham: Runners 'deflated' as Birmingham half marathon cut short.

Birmingham Mail / Birmingham Live: Great Birmingham Run no longer a half-marathon as heavy rain forces route change.

 

Starting at the Edgbaston Road junction with the Pershore Road in Edgbaston. Near the Cricket Ground.
