This summer sees the return of Sarehole Mill’s Run of The Mill 5k Virtual Fun run! Complete the challenge and claim your bespoke finishers medal.

Sign up to run, walk or jog 5k anytime until 19th September and claim your fantastic #ROTMsummer medal. Go at your own pace and use your own route just so long as you start or finish at Sarehole Mill and do the 5k distance all in one go.

Once completed you can collect your medal from The Community Shop at Sarehole Mill. The shop team will ask for your name, email address and confirmation that you have completed a 5k route (using Strava or Garmin or similar).

If you don’t currently have the means to track your route, there are a number of running apps available for free including Strava and Nike Run Club. These apps will measure the distance and time of your route.

We’d love you to do some fundraising for your Fun Run. By fundraising for Birmingham Museums you will help make our museums safe and welcoming for all visitors. Please consider fundraising or donating a further £20 if you can.

There are some wonderful parks and off-road paths surrounding Sarehole Mill that make for a really enjoyable run or walk. If you don’t know the area, have a look at this 5k route around Shire Country Park.

We also have a medal for 10k finishers, so why not try the 10k run as well?
