According to their website, the June, July and September events are currently going ahead as planned.
You can check out the June, July and September events including information on how to enter on the Run media City website here.
On the site, you can view a range of past finishing times, course maps and check out pictures to get a better idea of the event.
The event is simple, runners can collect their race pack at the collection point on the evening of the race and there is an opportunity for questions before you can drop your belongings off and join in a group warm-up before the race.
The event is run by Run Through UK, a London based running community who set up running events, training sessions and coaching. Their tagline is ‘For Runners, by runners.’
Earlier this year Head of Communications, Lucy Harfield, said: “Run Media City is an event welcoming runners of all abilities.
“Whether it is your first ever 5k or 100th 10k we’ll have a team of enthusiastic marshals to cheer you from start to finish.”
We also asked Lucy why Media City is the location for the run.
Lucy said: “Media City has a great buzz and there are plenty of landmarks to take in along the course with the added bonus of the area being flat it creates a great route for anyone wanting to run a personal best.”
Run Media city is a fantastic event open to all ages that would’ve welcomed runners of all abilities. We hope the June, July and September events can go forward as planned.
