Birmingham Half Marathons

Right here in Birmingham is a fantastic place to run, and we can’t wait to see you down here.

Push your limits with a Birmingham Half Marathon

Excluding ultra marathons, the half marathon is almost as tough as it gets, and many find the step from half to full easier than the 10k to the half marathon. With the finish line set 21.1km from the start line, pushing your body that distance at a run is no small feat. Come race day, even an experienced runner can find themselves a little nervous, whether the goal is to set a new personal best or simply to cross that line for the first time—come and push your own limits with a Birmingham half marathon!

Take on your next half marathon with us!

Support for the new runner or an extra push for the experienced to break through to a new personal best, Runthrough is the UK’s premiere race organiser for a reason. Our events are thoughtfully organised to give you the best possible experience, and our wholly our own. We don’t just collate every race occurring in the country—we only promote races that we’ve prepared ourselves with care and attention to detail. If you’re looking for a challenge in a comfortable, friendly and supportive environment then sign up today for a Runthrough UK organised Birmingham Half Marathon!

Birmingham Half Marathon FAQs 

What is the average time for a half marathon?

The average marathon time taken to run a half marathon, in the UK, is just over 2 hours— 2:02:43 to be precise. If this average time sounds difficult, it’s important to remember that except at the highest levels of competition—you’re running against yourself, not anyone else. The world record for a half marathon is less than half the average—less than an hour at barely 58 minutes. The difference between the fastest runner and the average is huge, and simply finishing the race is a great achievement.

What date is the Birmingham half marathon?

One of the best times to run a Birmingham half marathon is at the Birmingham Running Festival on the 22nd of May (in 2022). This even offers both a 5k, 10k and half marathon for keen runners of every ability level.

When is the Birmingham Running Festival?

Held every year, this year Runthrough UK’s Birmingham Running Festival will be on Sunday the 22nd of May.

Where does the Birmingham Running Festival start?

The Birmingham Running Festival is held on mostly tarmac paths with a small section of gravel at the beautiful Sutton Park. Sign up online, and check out all the details for the running festival on our dedicated Birmingham Running Festival website https://www.birminghamrunningfestival.com/
