Good For Age Entry

The Good for Age entry system for The Vitality Big Half 2018 is now closed.

Applications are accepted from runners who have achieved an exceptional time in an official half marathon, which is 13.1 miles in length, since 1 January 2016. Specific details on the required qualifying times are provided below.

Good for Age places in The Vitality Big Half 2018 are limited and are available on a first come, first served basis.

Meeting the entry criteria does not guarantee a place in the 2018 event.

Your application will be checked and you will be sent an email to let you know if you have secured a place or not.

Please note: if you were successful in obtaining a place but did not make payment by the deadline of 17:00 on 2 February 2018, you will lose your place.

You also need to reside in the UK. Please be aware that, due to limited availability, meeting the criteria does not guarantee you a place in the 2018 event.
