The Handsworth Park 10k Fun Run, formerly known as The Pete Hayes Handsworth 10K fun run is a community event based in Handsworth in Birmingham, raising money for the British Heart Foundation.
The event aims to bring the local community together in order to raise awareness of how and why to keep fit, to engage with and create events and opportunities in the area surrounding Handsworth Park.
Everyone is welcome to join in whatever capacity they wish to. You can enter the race, share the event with your friends and community, donate to the BHF, or help by volunteering on the day and join to support the runners taking part in the event.
