Beat Beethoven 5K – Media City March 2020

Can you Beat Beethoven?

Whether you’re a budding jogger or a half marathon challenger, join us for a race like no other and help Sport Relief raise life-changing amounts of money to support people living incredibly tough lives in the UK and around the world. On Friday 13th March, as part of Sport Relief, the BBC Philharmonic orchestra will play Beethoven’s famous Fifth Symphony live at MediaCityUK.

You could join hundreds of other people challenging themselves to run 5K and “beat” the music, which lasts between 30-35 minutes. Be there on the day or run your own race with Radio 3 on BBC Sounds.

So, what are you waiting for? Help us take on poverty and injustice, get your kit on and join us for what promises to be a fantastic day.
