Supporting local communities
Since the first edition of The Big Half, we have supported local communities by offering a special £10 community entry route, and we did this again for the 2021 event, which took place on Sunday 22 August.
As organisers of The Big Half, our vision is Inspiring Activity, which is why we make these community places available to inspire under-represented communities to take part. We want everyone to feel equal, included and free to be themselves. We believe passionately that our events should reflect and represent the ethnic and cultural diversity of our communities.
To realise this ambition, we will prioritise providing community entries to groups that actively work to include under-represented communities, in particular Black, Asian and minority ethnic participants.
Community entries for 2021 are now closed. If your community group has been allocated places in the event, you will be able to register runners until Friday 6 August.
