Created by the people behind the London Marathon, The Big Half is a new one day festival centred around the half marathon distance.

It aims to be a truly global and uniquely local celebration of the wonderful cultural diversity of the great city of London with the half marathon starting at Tower Bridge, passing through the boroughs of Southwark, Tower Hamlets, Lewisham and Greenwich, before finishing in Greenwich.

Frequently asked questions

We are a small charity with limited resources but we would give you as much support with your fundraising as we can, including help with setting up a fundraising page and promoting your fundraising. As a member of Team AP you would receive a free running vest or t-shirt to wear on the day and during your training. And, of course, the satisfying and rewarding feeling that your efforts are helping thousands of disadvantaged school children in Kenya.

The route for the 2019 edition of The Vitality Big Half will be announced later in the year. In 2018, the race started by Tower Bridge and finished at the Cutty Sark in Greenwich. The route goes through four London boroughs: Southwark, Lewisham, Tower Hamlets and Greenwich.
