Time to get involved?

Making the decision to start running is one of the easiest ways to make a positive change in your life. If you're ready for a change, running can be a simple way to help destress, gain energy, tone up and meet new friends. In fact, visiting this page could be your first step towards a brighter, healthier future. Get off the sofa and into one of our groups to see the opportunities that lie ahead.

Running can fit around even the busiest family life and most people won't need to buy any kit to get started. Comfortable trainers and clothes you can move easily in will be fine for your first few sessions.

There's more to getting involved with Run Birmingham than running too. Many people who join our groups soon find that they are ready to volunteer as a marshall or in supporting bigger events. You could even train to be a leader or coach, supporting future talent by harnessing their skills. It's a real community, so join the movement today.
