The Birmingham Swifts are a free, LGBT running group open to everyone no matter what your ability, age, sexuality or gender.
It’s our aim to help you achieve your running goals in a friendly and supportive environment, whether you want to run your first 5 kilometres or your first marathon.
New to running?
We hold a number of Starting Out Sessions throughout the year designed for people will little or no running experience. We aim to provide a friendly, supportive and run environment designed over a 10 week period to enable you to run 5k. Our next Starting Out Sessions begin on Saturday 9th June.
Run with us
If you’ve started running and can cover a distance of around 4-5 miles, we welcome you to join us on our weekly runs. Our main social run is held on Thursdays, where we have a “loop system” in place which ensures everyone runs together and no one is left behind, and we join the local Birmingham parkrun on Saturdays.
If you chose to affiliate with the Swifts, we offer our members inclusive technical training sessions to help improve your running style and progress you to be a better runner.
