About the event

Experience the sights and celebrate the cultural diversity of London running the Big Half.

You’ll start at Tower Bridge, then run on closed roads towards Canary Wharf. You’ll cross the river and go past the Cutty Sark before celebrating your finish at The Big Festival in Greenwich Park. 

Why run with the British Red Cross?

The British Red Cross helps millions of people in the UK and around the world get the support they need if crisis strikes. We’re part of the global Red Cross and Red Crescent movement, and we believe in the power of kindness. Every step you take and every pound you raise will help fund this work.

As part of Team Red Cross, you will be supported through every part of your event preparation. Our national events team will be on-hand to encourage you with your fundraising, answer any questions you have and to thank you for all of your hard work.

You will receive:

  • a fundraising pack full of tips and advice to help you reach your sponsorship target
  • dedicated support, including training advice
  • a British Red Cross running vest
  • updates on the work of the British Red Cross in the UK and overseas.
