The Simplyhealth Great Birmingham Run has been cancelled

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this event has sadly been cancelled. Thank you so much to all #TeamStGiles members who had already secured their place. A member of the Fundraising Team will be in touch with all participants soon to discuss your options.

To find out more about the cancellation, please visit the event website here. We know how disappointing this is, but we’re sure everyone will understand why this decision has been made. The Great Birmingham Run is now scheduled to take place on 10th October 2021, and we’d love you to be part of it.

Raise funds as you run in October by joining #TeamStGiles for the Simplyhealth Great Birmingham Run!

Take your place as the city comes together for a half marathon challenge. Experience the support of the community all the way along the 13.1 mile course through the heart of Birmingham.

We’re offering 5 runners a FREE ENTRY to this popular event, along with a minimum fundraising target. All money raised through your sponsorship will help us provide care for local people and their families.

As part of #TeamStGiles we will provide you with training tips, fundraising guides and a t-shirt to help you complete your distance, reach your target and most importantly have fun!

Our 5 free places are available on a first come first served basis, however you can still run as part of #TeamStGiles if you secure your own place. We’d love to have you on board!

“Raising funds for St Giles is so fulfilling. Dad looked forward to going there so as a family we are eternally grateful. They helped him to keep his smile to the end.”

In 2019, Craig Ruff and his family formed “Team Tone” to run the Tamworth Gate Gallop for St Giles in memory of his father Tony. In October, Craig and his sister Danielle also ran the Great Birmingham Half Marathon in aid of the hospice.

“When I did the half marathon, I had moments where I struggled, but that was nothing compared to the effort St Giles put in to caring for Dad.” Craig explained.

“St Giles is such an important local charity. You always feel cared for there and it’s such a comforting place.

“I’d run to the ends of the earth to give St Giles the funds to help people like Dad and families like us.”

Join Craig and fundraise for St Giles to help us to support local people and their families, living with a terminal illness.
