Saheli Hub Running
Saheli work in partnership with Run Birmingham and deliver ‘women only beginners running ‘sessions.
The Saheli runners were challenged by the Deputy Leader Cllr Ian Ward to get more BME women’s participation in the Birmingham Half Marathon(BHM). Saheli took up the challenge in 2014 and in the first year 17 Saheli runners took part in their first ever Half Marathon.
In 2015 we had 30 women take part in the BHM.
To date Saheli Runners have completed four Half Marathons (including the Great North Run in 2015)
Four 10ks and the group travelled up to Edinburgh in 2016 to take part in the Edinburgh 10.5 miles in April 2016
You do not have to be a runner to join the group. You can start off walking and decide if you want to – when you are confident enough to – start to running. We will be with you every step of the way.
So, when can you join us?
From January 2017, there will be 2 sessions lead by Saheli:

We meet at the carpark at the back of the MAC.
Please note: As you enter the car park please turn left and park as we will start our session with a warm up in the carpark and then walk out along Edgbaston Road across from Edgbaston Cricket Ground)
