Thursday evenings are our informal group run; great for beginners and more experienced runners. Those new to running are joined by a run leader and act as the back of the group. Runners who are more experienced can run as fast as they’d like and have the opportunity to run further using scheduled loop points. When a loop point is reached, runners are encouraged to turn around and run to the back of the group to meet up with those at the back. This enables everyone to run together whilst allowing the opportunity to run faster and further for those who want to. It’s a great opportunity to chat to people at all levels throughout the run.

We run for between 4 and 5 miles, starting from the Birmingham LGBT Centre, B1 1EQ.

Thursday runs are ideal for all abilities and everyone is welcome!

Summer Routes

We have a variety of Summer Run Routes where we explore the parks & canals of Birmingham including out to the beautiful Vale at The University of Birmingham. You’ll be amazed at what you will find and it can feel like you’re worlds away from the busy city centre.


Winter Routes

Taking into account the darker nights, we use a variety of routes including quiet roads through Edgbaston; through the heart of the City Centre on mostly pedestrianised routes and others. We try and avoid as many roads as possible, but our routes still have traffic on them, so please bear this in mind. During the winter months, please try and wear high-vis clothing so you can be seen!

There are changing facilities available at The Birmingham LGBT Centre with bag storage but no shower facilities.
