The sister of a man who died after completing last year's Great Birmingham Run says today will be a tough day for her.
Kathryn Cowen's brother, Kevin Paterson, who lived in Birmingham, died when he collapsed after crossing the finish line last year. 25 of his friends and family are running and raising money for Cardiac Risk in the Young.
The 13.1 mile run will take place on October 21. Six-time Paralympic god medallist, David Weir, will be taking part along with around 18,000 other runners.
The half-marathon is the biggest in the Midlands, with runners taking in some of the city’s most iconic sights, including the Bullring, the Cadbury’s factor in Bourneville and Edgbaston Cricket Ground.
