the route

Starting near the Birmingham Bull Ring in the heart of Birmingham city centre, the 42-mile route will weave its way through the beautiful West Midlands countryside en route to the heart of Coventry – the European City of Sport 2019 and City of Culture 2021 – where you will cross the finish line on University Square in the shadow of the historic Coventry Cathedral.

Along the way, you will encounter stunning countryside, panoramic views, picturesque villages and climbs… not to mention the tens of thousands of residents lining the streets to cheer you on!
