We raised over £5,000 at Run4Refugees 2019! Thanks to all who were involved. Check back Spring 2020 for information about Run4Refugees 2020...
Run4Refugees is a sponsored run event in aid of refugees.
Run4Refugees 2019 will take place in Cannon Hill Park, Birmingham on the 23rd March 2019, at 12 o'clock. The meeting place is the bandstand, near the mini golf course.
See course details. Arrival and registration is from 11:15.
You can run or walk either 5K or 10K. There will be a entrance fee (refugees go free). Sign up is BELOW, and is also available on the day.
The entrance fee is £10 for adults and £5 for concessions (students, U18s and over 60s). 100% of this money goes to charity, please give more if you can!
Entrance fee is payable on the day, in cash, or you can pay via the online giving page, clearly stating in the reference your initials and 'REG FEE'
If you don't want to run, please consider coming to support, either as a spectator or as a voluntary run marshall (email email@example.com).
Click here for tips and advice about preparing for and running a race, such as what to eat and what to wear. Free water and sugary sweets will be provided - to keep you hydrated and to give you that energy buzz!
There will be representatives from the charities and stands with more information at the event. Please check out their stalls by the bandstand.
Toilet facilities are available near the bandstand, at the MAC and the tea room in the park.
Parking is available at the MAC car park or Russel Road car park. These are both 'Pay and Display' car parks. It is recommended that you walk/cycle if possible, or use public transport. Parking is also available in the roads surrounding the park.
There will be no medals at this event - we aim to keep costs low (organisers covering the costs), so that 100% goes to charity.
Children can run, but have to be within 2 metres of an adult at all times. All are welcome to come and support.
