Why run the Vitality Big Half in support of The Forward Trust?

Back for its 2nd year and brought to you by the organisers of the Virgin Money Giving London Marathon, The Vitality Big Half is set to be one of the best half marathons out there. Runners will be starting at Tower Bridge and finishing in Greenwich, passing through the boroughs of Southwark, Tower Hamlets, Lewisham and Greenwich.

Around 2 million people (1 in 30 adults) in the UK are struggling with addiction to drugs or alcohol. Amongst marginalised groups, such as homeless people, the proportion can be as high as 1 in 3 and amongst prisoners, it is higher than 1 in 2 – more than 50% of all prisoners have some history of drug or alcohol problems. The waste of potential, as well as the social and emotional damage involved is massive – but it is also redeemable.  

With your support we can continue delivering services that bring lasting change to people’s lives away from addiction and/or crime.

Join Team #BreakTheCycle and you will get:

  • A Forward Trust running vest with your name on it
  • Dedicated support and advice from the Forward team on any questions you have from race information to online fundraising

  • A celebratory welcome for champions
