Good For Age Entry

The Vitality Big Half returns on Sunday 1 March 2020 and applications for a Good for Age entry are now open.

If you qualify for a Championship entry into the 2020 event, please do not make an application for a Good for Age entry.

Good for Age entries into The Vitality Big Half have been capped. So please be aware that an application and meeting the criteria of an entry does not guarantee you will be offered a place in the 2020 event.

Our team will be checking your application and will contact you via email within 15 working days to let you know if you have secured a Good for Age place or not. If you are successful in obtaining a place, we will send you an email confirming that your application has been successful with instructions on how to secure your place on the Start Line of the 2020 Vitality Big Half. You will need to complete and pay for your entry by 17:00 on Monday 10 February 2020. If the entry form is not completed and/or payment is not made by this time, you will lose your place.

You must also be a UK resident to be eligible for a Good for Age entry. Please be aware that an application and meeting the criteria of an entry does not guarantee you a Good for Age place for the 2020 event.
