The National Running Show Birmingham is held annually at the NEC and brings together a community of runners looking for inspiration, motivation and expert advice. The event is for all runners of all abilities whether you are at the beginning of a journey, an ultra-athlete or you are running for a cause.
Mike Seaman, CEO of event organiser Raccoon Events said: “We are thrilled to be working with Birmingham Children’s Hospital Charity and to be able to promote and support the incredible work that they do, especially at a time when the NHS has been hit hard. People run for many different reasons and there are incredible mental wellbeing and physical benefits in doing so. There are so many unsung heroes who run incredible distances to raise money for charity, and we hope to encourage people in Birmingham to run their next race for this incredible hospital.”
