The London Big Half – Sunday 4th March 2018

From the organisers of the London Marathon comes a new one day festival centred around the half marathon distance (13.1 miles) held on closed roads around London. The event aims to be 'Truly Global yet Uniquely Local', attracting the world’s best athletes as well as thousands of mass runners, followed by a street party of epic proportions.


General entries for this event are now closed, however we have ten spaces available, though these are likely to go fast, so if you’re interested get in touch with Tamora Burford at or call on 01923 496 225. Entry requires a deposit of £39 pp, with a minimum sponsorship of £250 (excluding gift aid).


Runners in The Big Half must be 17 on 4 March 2018 or over.
