AJ Bell Junior & Mini Great Birmingham Run
Calling all future running stars! Lace up your shoes, it’s time to race and find your superpower at this year’s AJ Bell Junior and Mini Great Birmingham Run!
We want each and every one of our young runners, and spectators, to discover their own superpower – whether it’s racing, fundraising or being a superstar spectator. We’re also inviting our enthusiastic runners (big and small!) to come in superhero fancy dress! We’re thinking capes, eye masks and something else to showcase your own power…
The AJ Bell Junior and Mini Great Birmingham Run sees our smallest Brummie runners (aged 3-8) take on a 1.5km dash, while Junior runners (aged 9-15) tackle a supercharged 2.5km sprint. With a city centre start and finish and the same distinctive carnival atmosphere as the main event, Birmingham’s next generation of athletes will be off to a flying start.
Mini entrants (3-8 yrs) must run with a parent, each child should be entered into the event. Junior entrants (9+) do not need to be accompanied by an adult although this can be requested upon entry if required, each child should be entered into the event.
