BUPA Great Birmingham Run – TODAY!

The BUPA Great Birmingham Run takes places today. The event will see around 50 elite athletes taking part, along with a supporting case of 18,000 runners, so there’ll be more people than usual pounding the pavements of Digbeth!

The half-marathon sets off from Sand Pits Parade with an elite wheelchair race at 09:45. Before and during the race, a number of road closures will be implemented for the safety of the runners and the spectators lining the route.

For residents of Digbeth, the following roads will be affected:

  • Bradford Street
  • Barford Street
  • Moseley Street
  • Rea Street South
  • Macdonald Street

Any vehicles parked along the marathon route overnight will have been moved to an adjoining road, and may be subject to parking fines.

A residents’ hotline is available from 07:00 until 13:00 today. For any enquiries about road closures, parking arrangements or access, please call 0121 303 0067.
