Training

Running a half marathon is an incredible achievement. The earlier you start your training, the better, and there are plenty of guides around to help you prepare.

Once your place is confirmed, our fundraising team can advise you on training plans and how best to get ready for the challenge.

“My team and I really enjoyed taking part in the Blickling Half Marathon. It has been a great experience for the team working with Big C; they’ve been easy to work with and it’s really rewarding to raise money to contribute to all the great work they do for the local community.”
