Birmingham International Marathon announced

A new Birmingham marathon has been announced more than 30 years after the city held its last 26.2 mile run.

The Birmingham International Marathon and half marathon will be held on the same day in October 2017, organisers hope.

The event follows in the footsteps the People's Marathon which ran between 1980 and 1985, hailed as the start of the mass-marathon craze in Britain.
