The Big Half 2018

The brand new half marathon from London Marathon Events Ltd starts at Tower Bridge and finishes in Greenwich, taking in much of the famous London Marathon route

London Marathon Events Ltd, in partnership with Sported, have created a brand new half marathon event which will be held for the first time on Sunday 4 March 2018. Public entries have already sold out but you can still enter with a Meningitis Research Foundation charity place.

Sharing much of its 13.1 mile route with the London Marathon, The Big Half is a celebration at the heart of London with DJs, bands, food and plenty of colour along the route!

We don’t charge a registration fee for our places; with support available from our fundraising team, we ask you to pledge to raise a minimum sponsorship of £300. All of our runners are provided with a training and fundraising pack, and a Meningitis Research Foundation running vest.

By becoming part of our team you will be helping to bring a world free from meningitis and septicaemia a step closer.

Meningitis and septicaemia are devastating diseases which can kill or disable in hours. Although anyone of any age can get the diseases, babies, children and young adults are most at risk.

Your contribution will enable us to fund research into the prevention, detection and treatment of meningitis and septicaemia, provide life-saving awareness information and support people who have lost a loved one or are coping with after effects.
