Trial Event Successful in Selly Oak

Many thanks to the University of Birmingham School for volunteering at our Great Run Local in Selly Oak Park!

The Great Run Local in Selly Oak Park is ready and raring to launch next Wednesday, after the success of a trial event yesterday.

A hugely enjoyable afternoon was supported by the University of Birmingham school, who provided a huge number of volunteers. The infectious enthusiasm from these marshalls, who cheered each and every participant around the course, spread to those taking part in the event. If people are that excitable when it’s only the trial run… Selly Oak Park promises to have a great atmosphere when the event properly launches on Wednesday 18th November!

Once again, a massive thanks to all the volunteers who will be making this event happen over the current months. We couldn’t do it without you!
