Marathon

A standout moment of the athletics programme, the Marathon will take place in Birmingham on Saturday 30 July 2022 between the hours of 7am and 1.30pm. We hope local residents and businesses will embrace the race by lining the streets and cheering on our world class athletes as they race 26.2 miles around our city and suburbs showcasing some iconic locations, including a grand finish in Victoria Square.

There are four races included in the Marathon:

  • Men’s Marathon T53/T54 Final
  • Women’s Marathon T53/T54 Final
  • Men’s Marathon Final
  • Women’s Marathon Final

As with any road event, there will be some temporary road closures, changes to local access and parking restrictions required to allow all races to safely take place.
