The Vitality Big Half, 10th March 2019 – Limited Places Available!

⚡️Confirmed⚡️ – Sir Mo Farah will be running in the event

A half marathon starting at Tower Bridge and finishing in Greenwich, passing through the boroughs of Southwark, Tower Hamlets, Lewisham and Greenwich.

The Vitality Big Half will also feature a top international elite field, wheelchair racers and a mass field running on a certified course over the half marathon distance (which is therefore eligible for world records).

The Vitality Big Half is about more than just the run – it’s about the communities that we run through. We will be celebrating those communities all the way round the route with DJs, bands, food and plenty of colour! Contact Microtia UK for a FREE place.

Hackney Half, 19th May 2019 – Places Available!

We have secured places at the Hackney Half 2019 event with Virgin Sport. A 13.1 mile route (route and map TBC).

The Hackney Half 2018 event was amazing and we know that 2019 will be just as good! Our runners were overwhelmed by the crowd. They said it was electrifying, with a great atmosphere and a music festival afterwards with food and drink. If you are interested in securing a place and fundraising for Microtia UK then please get in touch!

Prudential Ride, London – Surrey 100, 4th August 2019

Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 starts from 05:45 in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, then follows a 100-mile route on closed roads

through the capital and into Surrey’s stunning countryside. With leg-testing climbs and a route made famous by the world’s best cyclists at the London 2012 Olympics, it’s a truly spectacular event for all involved. The Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 finishes on The Mall in central London, shortly before 150 professional cyclists race in the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey Classic on a similar route.

Royal Parks Foundation Half, 13th October 2019

This stunning central London Half Marathon, takes in some of the capital’s world-famous landmarks on closed roads, and four of London’s eight Royal Parks – Hyde Park, The Green Park, St James’s Park and Kensington Gardens. A stunning 13.1 mile route. We need people to understand that London’s beautiful Royal Parks need their support.

The money raised by the Royal Parks through this event helps to keep the magic of the Royal Parks alive through restoring monuments and playgrounds, teaching children about the natural world and caring for wildlife.

Royal Parks aim is to make race day as green and sustainable as possible. Sixty-six percent of all waste from the event is recycled and now avoids landfill sites. They’re working hard to do more with every event they put on. It is important to them that we not only protect the Parks but do our bit to reduce our impact on the wider world.
