The event
From the organisers of the Virgin Money London Marathon, join Team Aspire as we take on this exciting new event. The Big Half course gives runners a taster of the official London Marathon course just weeks ahead of the event. Passing some of London's most iconic landmarks, runners will cover 13 miles starting at Tower Bridge and finishing in Greenwich. This event is perfect for those tempted by the London Marathon but not sure if they're quite ready.

Your impact
Our goal is simple - independence. We ask our Big Half runners to raise a minimum of £250 to help people paralysed by spinal cord injury move on from injury to independence.

Last year our Aspire runners raised over £45,000 taking part in events throughout the year for people with spinal cord injury. This incredible amount helped over 40 people move on with their lives from injury to independence. Rowena was able to purchase a hand bike with the help of Aspire runners that has allowed her to get out and about enjoying the countryside again. She said: "I try to get across to people that it’s not just about access, it means that I can have fun again. My hand bike has given me back some fun and the capacity to get out into the fresh air again. I’ve got Aspire to thank for that.”
