The 2019 Simplyhealth Great Birmingham 10k has two start lines - both on Colmore Row, either side of its junction with Bennetts Hill. Depending on which side of Colmore Row participants start they will assemble along Waterloo Street and Victoria Square or towards Birmingham Cathedral.
The route then follows Bennetts Hill and turns left on to New Street, crossing Corporation Street alongside the Apple store, the stunning grade II-listed building built in 1869 as the head office of the Midland Bank.
After passing the Rotunda and Bullring, runners will see the brand new Primark Pavillions development on High Street, due to open in April with the world's biggest Primark store, among other new retail and leisure attractions.
Runners will also go past Birmingham Children's Hospital - which will have hundreds of people taking part in the 10k raising funds on its behalf - before leaving the city centre to continue along the A34, where bands and live music will motivate those taking part, and a grandstand finish back in the city centre at Aston University.
Just before you hit the 9k mark you will get an extra boost as you run through a tunnel of sound and flashing lights, which will help to keep you motivated for the final stretch.
Having crossed the finish line, participants will be able to relax and meet up with friends and family in the event village.
There will be support along the way, including a drinks station at the 6k point and bands on the run, not to mention the encouragement of thousands of supporters and spectators lining the route.
