Run of the Mill - Sarehole Mill fun run open for entries

This July why not take on our 5K challenge, Run of the Mill? Get active, explore the area around Sarehole Mill, and raise funds for Birmingham Museums Trust during this challenging time.

You can run, walk or jog 5K and you can choose your route too, just so long as you start or finish at Sarehole Mill and do the 5K distance all in one go. You set the pace! If you don’t know the area, take a look at this great route around Shire Country Park.

You can complete the challenge any time during the month of July and the entry fee is just £10. This will help raise vital funds to support the work of Birmingham Museums, a charity with nine extraordinary museum and historic properties across the city, including Sarehole Mill, which is the inspiration for this fun run!

Enter Run of the Mill via our online shop

We’d love you to add some fundraising to your fun run too. By fundraising for Birmingham Museums, you will help make our museums safe and welcoming for when we open our doors again and ensure we can continue our work with communities. Please consider fundraising or donating a further £20 if you can (see details when entering).

When you have completed the challenge just pop along to Sarehole Mill where the team in the community shop  will have your exclusive Run of The Mill medal ready for you to collect. We’ll be well stocked with great post-run treats and drinks too but do check our opening hours if you want to collect your medal straight after your run.

We can’t wait to see your action shots, or why not take a selfie outside Sarehole Mill? Tag us on Twitter , Facebook and Instagram and use the hashtag #RunOfTheMill
