Important Event Announcement

In light of the Government’s most recent advice in relation to mass events and COVID-19, the London Landmarks Half Marathon has sadly been postponed.

The event organisers are working really hard with the local authorities to try to secure an alternative date for LLHM 2020. In the meantime, they've launched a solo, virtual challenge to help you raise the vital fundraising Make-A-Wish and other charities need from LLHM 2020 in the coming months.

Right now - when more children need our support than ever before - the cancellation of some of our flagship events due to the coronavirus puts around £1m of our fundraising income at risk. This puts our ability to grant children’s wishes under threat.

Run the Local Landmarks Challenge for Make-A-Wish UK

1. Register for the Local Landmarks Challenge here. The challenge is open to everyone, whether you have a place in LLHM 2020 or not, and distances over 5K qualify for the challenge.

2. Run your solo Local Landmarks Challenge. This can be in one go, or a number of runs over multiple days!

About the event

The London Landmarks Half Marathon is a closed road central London run. This event is not your average half marathon! It will celebrate London’s wonderful culture and heritage, and runners and spectators will discover London’s ‘quirky & hidden’ secrets.

13,000 runners will start on Pall Mall, finish by Downing Street and have fabulous views of London’s most iconic landmarks including Big Ben, St Paul’s Cathedral, Nelson’s Column, the Shard and the London Eye.

Mile markers will reveal quirky facts, from London’s biggest grasshopper to where the bowler hat was invented. Experience Roman-themed water stations and be cheered on by suffragettes at the London Landmarks Half Marathon.
