The London Landmarks Half Marathon is a brand new, closed road, central London run. It is the only half marathon to go through both the City of London and City of Westminster and the first event will take place on the 25 March 2018.
The event is not your average half marathon! From cultural landmarks and heritage to the city's quirky and hidden secrets, runners will get to explore the capital on a route like no other!
10,000 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 Gherkin, the Shard, the Tower of London and the London Eye.
The event will also deliver a pan-London community engagement programme and involve London wide schools, boroughs, community groups, cultural organisations, sports clubs and businesses in developing the event and on the day.
The event is owned by baby charity, Tommy's who came up with the idea in 2014. Tommy's are delighted to be launching this exciting new event with the support of Westminster City Council and the City of London Corporation.
Lia Bowman, Race Director at the London Landmarks Half Marathon commented,
“We are so excited to bring this new event to our capital and have no doubt it will be one of the best mass participation experiences in the UK. Runners can expect to be surprised with much fun along the route! We want to make sure we keep them well entertained throughout their 13.1 mile challenge and give them lots to talk about after!’
Jane Brewin, Chief Executive at Tommy’s commented
“We are looking forward to working with schools and local communicates to make the London Landmarks Half Marathon a day to remember in London’s annual calendar. This wonderful city will have the opportunity to showcase its fascinating history, vibrant culture and its amazing people all joining forces to raise millions of pounds for good causes and encouraging people to get fit and healthy too. We hope lots of people across London will take up the challenge”
