Tempted by the London Marathon but not quite ready? We have the next best thing for you. Take on The Big Half and have a taster of the official London Marathon race route!

Take in the sights of London and run half the famous London Marathon course in reverse.

We have secured 3 places in this sought-after race.

Join the KHH team on the closed roads of London, passing the iconic Tower Bridge and Cutty Sark, and celebrate the very best the capital has to offer in this exciting half-marathon.

The race starts just north of Tower Bridge as runners head east towards Canary Wharf, turning at the 5km mark to come back towards the bridge. Once you’re across the Thames you turn left towards Greenwich and mostly follow the curves of the Thames down to the finish line. The course is flat and fast, but there are a couple of tough stretches.

Secure a place in The Big Half. You'll need to pay a £20 entry fee and commit to raising £230 in sponsorship (excluding Gift Aid) - you will need to raise £115 of the sponsorship by 1 July.

Do you already have a place in The Big Half?

Did you pay an entry fee directly to the event organisers? We'd love you to join the team as an Own Place runner. You'll get the same benefits as a Charity Place runner, there just isn't any fundraising pledge. We simply ask you to raise as much as you can. 

Please let us know if you've got a place already so that we can support you with your fundraising - see Contact us further down the page.

Support for you

By joining our team, not only will you help power our life-saving research, but you'll also benefit from:
