Sports Tours International

Birmingham Half Marathon

A pleasant day weather wise greeted us this morning if a little chilly. Not that would have worried the 15,000 odd participants of this 3rd running of the half marathon in Britain’s second City.

I stood at the 1 mile mark in Digbeth to capture a few images and despite the runners taking a slight short cut round the right hand turn, in and out of traffic cones and central reservations, no one tripped and no incidents. Phew, that was a relief. I think the marshal at that point didn’t fancy trying to re-direct nearly 15,000 runners! Can’t say I blamed him.

Back up to Broad Street to see if I could get more images and after fighting through the crowds managed to get a clear spot. Unfortunately missed the winners but managed to get a few including a couple of MMAC members.

John Keegan; MMAC

Michael Elwell; Cobra RC & MMAC

As more and more runners finished, the congestion around the area of the Symphony Hall in Broad Street got quite unbearable and I understand from later radio reports that runners were queuing up to cross the finish line… not good.
