The Big Half marathon on Sunday 4th ends in Greenwich with a festival

The Vitality Big Half is intended to be more for Londoners than the London Marathon is: some spaces have been reserved for residents of the boroughs it goes through - Tower Hamlets, Southwark, Lewisham and Greenwich. The Triangle and environs have some runners: Ellie Brown, Tom Webb, and Mike (the Cheese and Meat) Jones, among others.

It starts at 9am by the Tower of London, goes east to Canary Wharf, back to Tower Bridge, across it, and then down river, ending at the Cutty Sark. 

The Vitality Big Festival in Greenwich Park has food from around the world, young music acts from around the capital, 'come and try' sports sessions (including boxing, cricket, and basketball), local community workshops, fitness stalls, a Science Museum roadshow, a maze and ferris wheel. For the full list, see
