The Vitality Big Half 2021

Following the government announcement on Monday 22 February of the planned roadmap out of lockdown, it’s clear it is not possible to deliver The Vitality Big Half as planned on Sunday 25 April.

The event will now take place on Sunday 22 August 2021.

Participants’ places in the event will be automatically transferred to the new event date.

If people are unable to take part on the new date, they will be able to either defer their place to the 2022 event or receive a full refund – participants will be emailed with their options in early April. No action is required now.

If participants have a place via a charity, sponsor or community entry, the owner of the place will contact them to discuss their options.

As the national vaccination programme continues to roll out, we’re all looking forward to The Vitality Big Half 2021 taking place on Sunday 22 August. In the meantime, enjoy your running, keep an eye on your inbox, and check back in April for further updates.

What makes The Vitality Big Half unique?

We (London Marathon Events Ltd.) recognise that London’s running events don’t reflect the communities they run through; we want our running events to bring together Londoners of all backgrounds.

The Vitality Big Half is a community running festival for everyone, no matter your age, background or running ability. This is a world-class running event that supports and encourages first-time runners to take part.

We want to create opportunities for people from all backgrounds to experience the health benefits of running – from weight loss and lowered blood pressure to stress management and better quality of sleep.
