London Landmarks Half Marathon
Important Event Announcement
As you may know, the organisers of London Landmarks Half Marathon cancelled the 2020 event due to the restrictions of Coronavirus.
LLHM have announced the 2021 event will be taking place on 23 May 2021 instead of 28 March 2021. The full statement from the organisers can be found here.
LLHM was set to raise over £200,000 in 2020 to help us grant wishes to children across the UK. 2,000 children’s wishes are currently waiting to be granted as soon as it is safe for us to do so.
What happens next?
The organisers have let us know that places from this year’s event unfortunately cannot be rolled over to 2021. We have submitted our charity application to buy places in the 2021 event. We are waiting to hear the outcome and will update all our runners as soon as we can.
Until we have further details from the organisers, we are not able to offer any deferrals to 2021.
In the meantime, we have prepared some questions which we think you’re likely to have below:
Q: When is the new event date for 2020?
The event organisers have announce the 2021 event will be taking place on 23 May 2021. To read their full statement, please click here.
Q: What happens to my place?
The organisers have let us know that this year's places cannot be rolled over to 2021. Make-A-Wish UK has applied to buy places in the 2021, we are still waiting to hear on the outcome of our application.
Q: What happens to my registration fee?
The registration fee is non-refundable.
Q: What happens to my fundraising?
All online fundraising is sent to Make-A-Wish on a weekly basis and so will have already been put to use helping us grant wishes for children across the UK. We currently have 2000 children whose wishes have been cancelled or put on hold as a result of corona virus. Now, our main priority is to make sure we have sufficient funds to grant their wishes as soon as we are able to.
Q: I have a ballot place – what does this mean for me?

Q: Can I transfer my place to another event with Make-A-Wish UK?
We will be able to give more information once we have been notified of our charity application to buy places from the organisers.
Q: I had already deferred to 2021 prior to cancellation – what does this mean for me?
As above, we have applied to buy places for the 2021 event. Once we have had another update from the organisers we will be in touch.
Q: I have lost money due to the price of accommodation/travel, what can I do?
Please check with your insurance provider or travel agent.
