The Big Half

The Big Half is one of London’s most exciting new races where it’s highly likely you’ll be taking part with the great Sir Mo Farah!

The event is now the UK’s biggest running festival with worldwide TV coverage when 20,000 will take to the streets of London! You’ll start at the famous Tower of London, taking in the best sights of east London, before crossing over the iconic Tower Bridge finishing at Cutty Sark – one of London’s biggest tourist attractions!

As the Big Half covers a large part of the famous London Marathon route, you’re sure to feel the excitement of taking part in this great race which covers most of the London Marathon route.

Don’t forget to visit the Sport and Fitness Festival and pick up your fantastic finishers medal at the end!
