How YOU can get involved with Great Run Locals

Weekends are made for running!

Following up the success of the Great Run Local Leyhill

and the return of Great Run Local The Vale

We think it’s time the North of the city had a look in.

Great Run Local is a free and friendly event run by local volunteers. These friendly runs are designed to encourage participation from all levels ranging from absolute beginners and families to more experienced regular runners.

The RunBirmingham team have done a few recces of Pype Hayes park and think it would be a great spot for one of these 2k or 5k runs.

We can help you measure the course, get your team together and show you the easy to use portable timing tech.

It’s over to you guys to get things up and running – we’re looking for a volunteer team to coordinate a GRL at Pype Hayes. We have plenty of roles available with something to suit all people. We can guarantee your volunteering journey will be rewarding and fun way to spread your love of running and staying active into the local community.

You can also join us on Sundays at 10.30am at Pype Hayes Park for a social run and chat to your run leaders for more info.

We look forward to hearing from you!
