Take on The Big Half and change the lives of children across the UK
Abuse changes childhoods. But so can we. Join our Big Half 2018 team and help us fight for every childhood.
The Big Half is a brand new 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.
Every mile you run and every penny you raise will mean that when a child needs us, we’re there. Together we can rebuild children’s lives and prevent abuse from ruining anymore.
