Distance: Half Marathon

Location: London

Created by the people behind the London Marathon, The Big Half is a vibrant, inclusive half marathon with a fun, festival atmosphere.

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 alongside the iconic Cutty Sark in Greenwich.

We do not currently have any charity places in the Big Half but you can still purchase a general entry place (priced at £56) on a first-come, first-served basis and participate on the charity’s behalf. First purchase your place (if you haven’t already) and then come back here to register your details and join our team.


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!

All participants in the Big Half must be aged 17 or older on race day.
