The Vitality Big Half

Created by London Marathon Events Ltd, in partnership with Sported, The Vitality Big Half is a community running festival that takes place in London every March.


This one-day event offers a host of running distances, from a challenging half marathon to a free one-mile course, as well as a family-friendly festival of food, music and activities.

It brings together world-class elite runners such as Sir Mo Farah with nearly 15,000 fun-runners. The course snakes through the streets of Southwark, Tower Hamlets, Lewisham and Greenwich.

Sported works in partnership with London Marathon Events to create a genuine engagement in the event with local communities. Preferential entries are offered to these community groups and London residents.
