Birmingham Black Country Half Marathon

The return to running weekend kicked off with the Birmingham Black Country Half Marathon, which is fitting as the last event before lockdown was the Stafford Half Marathon.

A great turnout for the Essington Harriers and some superb running on the BBCHM Point to Point down the canal from Wolverhampton to Birmingham, though I am sure there are a few more bridges than the last time I ran this route!
