With the New Year comes the usual mix of club events with cross country, road relays and track and field action all featuring strongly.
But there are also plenty of road and trail races throughout the year and below is a calendar of events for the next 12 months.
Some of the biggest local races include the Great Birmingham 10k on May 26th, the Black Country 10k Run on June 30th and the Great Birmingham Run Half Marathon on October 13th.
We are still awaiting dates for some events, including the Action Heart 5 mile race which is normally held in late February / early March.
And do double-check all events listed as race entries may close several weeks before the advertised date.
Have a great year of running throughout 2019!
