The Big Half is a brand new unique mass participation event, which takes place in London on Sunday 4 March 2018.

Organised by London Marathon Events it will be held for the first time in 2018. The Big Half is more than just an event; it is a campaign to demonstrate how sport and the community can get together to inspire social change, create social cohesion and improve health and wellbeing.

The campaign aims to attract people of all ages and all backgrounds and to inspire them to take part in an event, centred on running. Working in partnership with Sported, the sports development charity. The event is accessible, affordable and fun. It will celebrate London’s diverse communities in a way that no other sports event has done before.
