About the event

The London Landmarks Half Marathon is a closed road central London run. This event is not your average half marathon! 

Following the global Covid-19 pandemic, LLHM 2021 will be re-themed to celebrate the grand, quirky and hidden landmark moments of 2020, shining a light on how we are coming together as a nation during this unprecedented time. LLHM will be honouring the key workers, re-creating some of the fun moments of lockdown life, and remembering the kind actions of neighbours.

LLHM will also dedicate a mile of the route to running in memory of our loved ones who passed away during the pandemic, many of whom we were unable to pay tribute to at the time.
