Simplyhealth Great Birmingham 10k featuring the Commonwealth Run

To support Birmingham’s bid to host the 2026 Commonwealth Games, there will be a special theme to the 2017 Simplyhealth Great Birmingham 10k on Sunday, April 30, which will be televised live on Channel 5.

In addition to an elite race featuring selected Commonwealth nations, we are aiming to recruit runners, joggers or walkers to represent a host of Commonwealth nations and territories from across the globe.

If you were born in, or a passport holder, from one of the 71 nations and territories listed below we’d love to hear from you.
