Ever been tempted by the London Marathon?

Not sure if you’re quite ready? Why not run with Sporting Recovery in The Big Half 2018.

This exciting new event is run by the same organisers who stage the Virgin Money London Marathon. The Big Half course gives you a taster of the official London Marathon course just weeks ahead of the event. The route will start at Tower Bridge and finish by the Cutty Sark in Greenwich. Passing some of London’s most iconic landmarks, runners will cover 13 miles.

There is a Big Festival taking place in Greenwich Park. You can enjoy a well-deserved rest and be greeted by family and friends.
