The Big Half
The Big Half’s third year is upon us! Following highly successful sell-out events in 2018 and 2019, the Big Half 2020 promises to wow participants as they run along this spectacular route. Mo Farah is the reigning Champion having won the first two events, can he make it a hat trick, or will someone else take the crown? It could be you in your Team Amnesty vest!
Date: Sunday 1st March 2020
Distance: 13.1 miles / 21km
Minimum fundraising target: £350
Registration fee: £30
Minimum age: 18
The iconic route for The Big Half starts next to the Tower of London and goes east to Canary Wharf before doubling back to cross Tower Bridge and follows the river to finish in the spectacular setting of historic Greenwich. The route goes through four London boroughs: Southwark, Lewisham, Tower Hamlets and Greenwich.
At the finish line in Greenwich there will be a BIG Festival, celebrating London’s diversity with a wonderful range of food, music and entertainment. There will be local traders serving food from around the world, music playing throughout the day, performances from community groups and fun activities and fitness classes for the whole family to enjoy.
