Where’d H go?

The Vitality Big Half route starts by Tower Bridge and finishes at the iconic Cutty Sark and goes through the four London boroughs of Tower Hamlets, Southwark, Lewisham and Greenwich.


The familiar faces. With this being one of the most sought after race spots in London, we saw plenty of friendly faces whilst bag dropping and loo stopping.

H Struggled…

The bag drop. It was chaos. We had to drop bags around 45 mins before the start, and let us tell you it wasn’t warm. 

Why this Race…

It was one of my bucket list for quite a while, and I was told it was a fast route!

Famous Faces…

Steph Davies, our super-fast friend who absolutely smashed it out the park to take third place. 

Mid run Brainwave…

These crowds are really crushing my intervals plan.

Rocket Fuel…

I had about half a pack of Clif Bloks!

Number 1 Fan…

Laura Donnelly who ran with me most of the way!
