The Vitality Big Half 2019

Looking for a running challenge in for 2019? We have six charity places available for the Vitality Big Half.

Where: London
When: 10 March 2019

This run is London’s community half marathon, starting by Tower Bridge and finishing at the iconic Cutty Sark in Greenwich. Be inspired by some of the world’s best athletes and the thousands of participants of all ages and abilities as you run the scenic 13.1 mile course through London.

In return for your place we just ask that you raise a minimum of £120 in sponsorship. We will provide you with a runner’s pack with everything you need, including a Mesothelioma UK running top.
