ABOUT THE BIG HALF

The Big Half is a half marathon in London that follows a stunning 13.1-mile closed-road course, starting by Tower Bridge and finishing at Cutty Sark in Greenwich. The 2022 event will take place on Sunday 4 September.

CELEBRATING DIVERSITY

London Marathon Events created The Big Half in 2018, in partnership with Sported, because many of London’s running events didn’t truly reflect the communities they pass through. We want to change this by bringing Londoners of all backgrounds and abilities together in a celebration of the city’s diversity.

So while The Big Half features the some of the world’s best athletes – in the men’s, women’s and wheelchair elite fields – and thousands of mass participation runners taking on the same course, it’s much more than a half marathon. It’s a community running festival and everyone is invited!

The positive impact the group has had on me is huge. I don’t feel so isolated any more. If the support had not been available I would still be facing depression and loneliness, unable to look after myself and over-thinking things.

Raise money and have fun!

Read what some of our fundraisers have to say.

"I enjoyed seeing my fundraising increase on a weekly basis, the events that I organised pushed me out of my comfort zone, I talked to people about Mental Health in a way that I would never have done otherwise."

"I was totally elated when I crossed the line and so glad I’d given it a go!"

Helen Taylor

"Mental Health UK was a friendly partner to have. I received lots of motivational encouragement via email which maybe doesn’t sound like much but knowing people are rooting for you really helps"
