The Great Birmingham Run

This Sunday, IE will take on the Birmingham Half Marathon 2014. MD, Ollie, who ran the course last year, and newest team member, Alessio De Francesco, will both be running for Trident Reach: The People Charity.

Featuring on the World Half Marathon Circuit, The Bupa Great Run is the biggest half marathon in the Midlands. The course weaves 13.1 miles around some of Birmingham’s best loved sites including: Cadbury World, Edgbaston and Victoria Square – along with the less welcome site of a hill climb up towards Cannon Hill Park.

If you jog your memory, you may remember a few members of the team ran the course last year.

This year, Alessio will be raising money for Reach, a local charity supporting disadvantaged and socially excluded people across the Midlands.

Ollie is also running, but will not be collecting sponsorship for this event, given that he received such fantastic support when he ran The Edinburgh Marathon 2014 back in May.

Good luck Ollie and Alessio!
