Regular runners of the Simplyhealth Great Birmingham 10k will notice a change at this year's event on Sunday, May 6.

Previously, runners would romp home to victory on Broad Street, but last year the notorious hill section up Lee Bank Middleway was removed and participants finished up on Curzon Street.

The course was changed to accommodate the £10 million revamp of Centenary Square.

Another development has caused the route to change again this year, now that the Curzon Street area has been boarded up to allow work on the new HS2 rail terminal.

Runners will pass the Birmingham Conservatoire as they head to the new finish area on Jennens Road, near Millennium Point and Thinktank.

The area is where last year's Simplyhealth Great Birmingham Run and Birmingham International Marathon finished.

The new course can be seen on the map below.
