Unfortunately, due to the continued risks of Covid-19 we are having to postpone the Birmingham Insurance Institute Fun Run, due to take place on the 21st March 2021. Initially, we looked to host the event later in the year, but following discussions with our event partners KP Events and due to the uncertainty around when mass participant events might be able to take place again, we have made the difficult decision to postpone until March 20th 2022, when we hope things will be back to normal. Covid-19 has had a significant impact on everyone, especially those in the events industry and charities who rely on donations from events such as these, so we hope you’ll support the new event date and help us make the run bigger than ever. As a result, entries will automatically be transferred to the new date in 2022.
Event starts: in 11 months,0 days,5 hours,26 minutes,20 seconds.
