We do not transfer or defer places in LLHM as stated in our terms and conditions. To read the T&C's please click here

 

Unfortunately entry to LLHM 2018 is now closed and it is not possible to take part this year. Please keep an eye out for 2019 details released on race day.

 

Address changes are no longer possible. If you have not received your race pack please click here for details on how to pick up a replacement.

 

We can no longer change t-shirt sizes as race packs are being prepared by our supplier.

 

Race Packs will be posted out from approximately 2 weeks before the event. For more info click here

 

We can no longer change estimated finish times as wave information is currently being compiled. We will split the field in to wave starts departing approximately every five minutes. If you wish to run with friends in the same wave but have been allocated different start times, you can join a later wave by dropping back to all start together.

 

The first wave will start at 09:30am. The last starters are scheduled to cross the start line at 10:10am.

 

You will need to finish in 4 hours from the last start wave to ensure you complete the event on closed roads. If you fall behind this time, you will be asked to continue on the pavements so that the roads can be re-opened to traffic.

 

Your time will be recorded with UHF Chip technology. Your finish time will be texted to you after crossing the finish line and will be available on the London Landmarks Half Marathon website.

 

If after the event you think there is an error with your timing please follow the instructions provided on the results section of the London Landmarks Half Marathon website.

 

Yes. The Bag Drop Area will be in Waterloo Place, so if you plan on leaving a bag please allow extra time as there will be queues (plan for at least 30 mins in this area). Please note WE WILL ONLY BE ACCEPTING OFFICIAL LONDON LANDMARKS HALF MARATHON DRAWSTRING BAGS. These are included in your race pack, which will be sent out as detailed above. We are sorry but other bags including suitcases, backpacks, satchels, briefcases, or sports bags will not be accepted.

 

The start line will be on Pall Mall but entry in to the start process will be from Cockspur Street. Bag Drop is located in Waterloo Place. The finish line will be on Whitehall, very close to the junction with Downing Street.

 

You will receive your finisher’s medal and free products from our event partners at the finish line. Your free technical t-shirt will be included in your race pack sent 2 weeks before the event.

 

Yes, there will be 28 pacers across our 6 waves with a variety of average speeds in some of the waves. For more info click here

 

If you are in need of medical assistance, please find the nearest steward or race official who will be able to radio for medical assistance. If you are exhausted and cannot continue but do not need medical assistance, please try and retire from the race at one of the first aid points or water stations where we will be able to sweep you to the finish line if required. (please be aware that you will need to wait until the final participant has gone past before this can occur). You can also make your own way back to Trafalgar Square or can head home if you wish to (there is no need to let us know if you have dropped out).
