Join #TeamAcorns for the Midland’s biggest and best running event!

There’s everything you’d expect from a Great Run – notorious start line hype, top enroute entertainment and an event village that feels more like an after-party – but the carnival atmosphere and the passion and spirit of the runners is all Birmingham!

By joining #TeamAcorns you’ll be raising money for life limited and life threatened babies, children, and young people across the West Midlands.
