This Is My Run is a corporate Team challenge embodied within This Is My City Festival 2021. It provides a wonderful opportunity for you to get together with your work colleagues to compete for the magnificent This Is My Run 2021 trophy.

Our first This Is My Run event will take place on:

Saturday 12th June 2021, 4.30pm-6pm at University of Birmingham.


The Corporate Team Challenge results will be based on chip times.

Teams can be all male, all female or a combination of both. Each team must have a minimum of 4 runners who complete the 5k run challenge.

When entering, all team members should take care to list themselves under the same team name

The finishing chip time of each of the four runners in each race will be added together to give an overall team time. The team with the lowest total combined chip time from the two races will win the Trophy.
