Birmingham Black Country (Virtual) Half Marathon


I’ve wanted to run the Birmingham Black Country Half-marathon for years, but it always clashed with the Carnival. This year covid cancelled the carnival and post-phoned the race until today.
A couple of weeks ago the race was changed to a virtual event, and whilst running away from Wolverhampton would be motivational it would be tempered by running towards Birmingham – so I found a different canal (or 4) to run down.
I completed the 13.1 miles in 2:09, a much more realistic time than last week.

TLDR: 13.1 Miles in 2:09
