Manorfield Primary School

The Big Half Marathon- run and raise money for Manorfield! Places available!


At Manorfield Primary School, we have a vision to transform the lives of the children we work with.


Serving such a deprived community in Tower Hamlets, we recognise the huge barriers so many of our children face, but are determined that these barriers will not become excuses and that we will find ways to overcome the barriers and support our children in achieving just as well as and better than any other child in the country.


We want to give our children the very best start in their lives.  One of the ways we want to do this is to give the very best Nursery provision. 

We have therefore set out an ambitious aim of building a brand new state-of-the-art Nursery and outdoor learning area.


To do this, we have to raise funds and we’d love you to help us do this while ‘enjoying’ yourself!


The Big Half - - is a brand new half-marathon created by London Marathon Events and on the London Marathon course next March.


All the public places have gone and other places are now in high demand.  We are offering free places to anyone in return to committing to raise a minimum amount of sponsorship for the school. 


Funds will go towards the redevelopment of the nursery and outdoor play equipment - a much needed resource. Every penny raised will go directly to impact positively on children.


We have a team or around 50 runners signed up so far, including Mr Jackson, but we really want to add many, many more who together can raise a significant amount of money for the school and help make the dream of our new Nursery a reality.


It would be superb if anyone would like to join the team – there is plenty of time to train!


If you would like the chance to run in this great event, please email for more information.


Please do come along and join us – it will be a fantastic event.
