The Big Half

March 22, 2022

Sunday 4 September 2022
The Big Half is a brand new challenge for UHD charity in 2022 and you could be amongst the first to take on the 13.1 miles of fun for TeamUHD!

The Big Half is much more than a half marathon – it’s a community running festival, and everyone is invited!  On Sunday 4 September 2022, The Big Half will once again bring an unmissable festival atmosphere to the streets of London. Participants will take on a 13.1 mile route which starts by Tower Bridge in central London and finishes at the famous Cutty Sark in Greenwich.

The Big Half is the perfect challenge for runners or walkers who want to soak up the atmosphere of a marathon in our capital city but don’t want to take on the full 26.2 miles. This exciting event puts it’s community of participants at the forefront of the day and celebrates diversity by uniting local residents, world class athletes, and you our super supporters! 

Applications are now open to run in support of UHD charity. We have 10 places on offer on a first come first served basis so register today to avoid disappointment!

There is a registration fee of £30 and a minimum sponsorship target of £350. The money you raise will help us fund vital projects to enhance the care of patients and continue to support staff wellbeing, training and development at University Hospitals Dorset.

Join #teamUHD today and you’ll receive a UHD charity running vest, fundraising pack and advice and support to help you reach your fundraising target. We’ll also invite you to join our Strava group so you can share your training journey with us and all our runners from #teamUHD.
