How do I secure a place?

Please register to secure your place in the 2020 The Big Half and experience a new and diverse event. Once you've registered we can send you a support pack with fundraising ideas and training advice.

Have your own place?
If you are lucky enough to be allocated a ballot entry, email the Events Team for your running vest and supporter pack. There is no fundraising target with your own running place, we just ask that you raise as much as you can. All sponsorship will help us fund pioneering research across the world into spinal cord injury and its life-changing effects.
