BTHA and Toy Trust urge industry to run for charity in this year’s Big Half marathon

The BTHA and The Toy Trust are urging the industry to get behind this year’s charity event, a half marathon to be run to raise money for the children’s charity.

Final remaining places are now available to run in this year’s Vitality Big Half, and the BTHA is calling on the industry’s movers and shakers to book their free place by Monday, February 5th to take part.

Following the success of the 2018 event, the Toy Trust has secured a number of places in the 2019 Vitality Big Half – a half marathon that takes on some of London’s best sights, organised by the London Marathon organisers.

The Toy Trust is looking for runners to sign up to the event now and secure their place in a half marathon in central London while raising money for the industry’s charity, the Toy Trust.

The event date is Sunday, March 10th. Places in the event are free subject to availability and provided courtesy of the Toy Trust. Entrants will be asked to set up an online fundraising campaign to run.
