Great Birmingham Run 2015

Giving a passing runner a sweet

The Great Birmingham Run brought crowds of runners and local spectators out on to the streets on an overcast Sunday morning in October. Christ Church members and friends were there to encourage the runners, provide hospitality for spectators and take part in the race.
