An exclusive training session with a professional coach is up for grabs as part of the 2015 Morrisons Great Birmingham Run Business Challenge.

Companies entering a team in the 2015 race are also being asked to produce a short film with the best one winning a training session to help ahead of the half marathon in October.

The motivational film must be no longer than 60 seconds long but can funny, inspiring or simply educational.

Entries must be posted on the Great Birmingham Run Facebook page by August 31.

The one judged to be the best by the Great Run team will win an exclusive personalised training session to help prepare the company team for the 13.1-mile course around Birmingham on October 18.

The Business Challenge is open to small, medium and large businesses, with prizes for the first three teams in each category.

Last year's Business Challenge was the biggest ever, with over 500 runners and 46- teams taking part and HSBC, Malmaison Hotel Birmingham and KPMG have already signed up to the 2015 event.

Organisers hope to beat the record 22,000 runners who took part in the 2014 run which reached capacity a week before the event.

Business Challenge teams must be a minimum of four people and a maximum of eight but companies can enter as many teams as they want in male, female or mixed-sex categories.

Mixed teams must have a minimum of two men and two women.

Team members must be 16 years of age or over on race day and placings are based on the accumulated first four finishing times in each team.

Every team that enters 12 or more employees will receive their own personalised company engraved plaque.
