Safety and security at The Vitality Big Half

The safety and security of all our runners and spectators is of paramount importance and we work closely with the Metropolitan Police and other organisations to ensure you enjoy your day at The Vitality Big Half.

Using our wide-ranging experience of delivering world-leading mass participation events, including the Virgin Money London Marathon, we have a range of measures in place to help keep you safe and secure.

These include our highly trained security personnel, bag searches, sniffer dogs, the placement of vehicle mitigation and extensive CCTV across the entire route – as well as other measures that may not be visible.

Our team of friendly stewards are there to help to keep you safe, so don’t be surprised if they pop up and say hello! We are also keen to remind all runners and spectators, as well as staff and volunteers, that they have a role in delivering a safe and secure event. Anything looking out of place or appearing suspicious should be reported immediately to our stewards or the Police.

We hope you have a fun and enjoyable day at The Vitality Big Half.
