The Vitality Big Half

Tower Bridge, London SE1 4TW

Take on The Vitality Big Half and change the lives of children across the UK

The Vitality Big Half is an exciting half marathon in London, organised by the London Marathon. The 13.1 mile route starts at the iconic Tower Bridge in the heart of the city and finishes by the Cutty Sark in Greenwich. Runners can then enjoy a well earned rest at the Big Festival which takes place in nearby Greenwich Park.

The 2019 event has now passed - thank you to all our amazing runners who took part. If you would like to take part in 2020, please get in touch below!
