The Big Half 2018 is a new iconic Half Marathon event being held for the first time on Sunday 4 March 2018.


Created by London Marathon Events Ltd, The Big Half is a new one day festival centred around the half marathon distance, which aims to be truly global and uniquely local in a celebration of the wonderful cultural diversity of the great city of London.


  • Join 15,000 runners taking part in The Big Half 13.1mile route, starting at Tower Bridge and finishing at Cutty Sark in Greenwich.  The event passes through the boroughs of Southwark, Tower Hamlets, Lewisham and Greenwich.


  • The event ends with the Big Festival in Royal Greenwich Park: a chance to celebrate and enjoy food and music with family and friends.


  • Collect your goody bag at the Better Marquee after you’ve finished your run and we’ll celebrate with you.


This new running event sold out in a matter of hours when it was launched earlier this year.
