I’ve always enjoyed a run around, from my Middle School days when I used to drag my poor mother out to the school field at 6am to train for cross-country to more recently, using it as one of the most effective ways to relieve stress or anxiety. Having said that, I don’t run as often as I should… despite knowing how much I love it. For me, having an upcoming running race is the best kind of motivation, and nothing beats the feeling of race day.
Whether you’re a seasoned runner, or just embarking on your Couch to 5k journey, here’s a list of my favourite running events in the West Midlands. Sign up for added motivation, a new challenge and a great race day atmosphere.
