Run Birmingham relies on volunteers to encourage, motivate and inspire communities to get moving and stay moving! If you are interested in helping out, then please let us know! We’d love to hear from you.


The project can fund education and training (including Leadership in Running Fitness/LiRF) courses for those who are willing to organise and lead the Couch to 5k programmes across our Parks and Places

More information about the LiRF course can be found on the England Athletics website. Enjoy!

Volunteers will be needed to set up and run the Great Run Local events. This will include starting and finishing the runs, organising the Marshalls, and generally making sure the events run smoothly.

Our Great Run Local events need first aid provision and we can put training in place if this is an area you would like to learn about and get involved with.

Great Run Local participants need to know where they are going!! Volunteers will be needed to direct and encourage all participants as they make their way round the course.

Additionally, if you feel like you have any other skills that we could utilise (Photography, Journalism etc.) then don’t hesitate to let us know. We’re open to all ideas and absolutely grateful for any help!

Run Birmingham can be a great way to practice your skills and develop new ones – maybe as you develop a career in event management, coaching or leadership
