The Big Half 2021

The Vitality Big Half is back for another year! So if you’re looking for a step up from your 5 – 10k runs, or in need of a challenge, a half marathon could be for you!

The Big Half takes place in central London, starting at Tower Bridge (only a few minutes from our office) and finishing by The Cutty Sark in Greenwich. The race will take place on Sunday 22 August.

So why not? Are you ready for the challenge?

What about the pandemic?
The race will be COVID-secure and socially distanced. The Big Half is managed by the same organisers who stage the London Marathon (they’re no amateurs!), so if the race is postponed or cancelled the organisers have assured a full refund will be offered.
