It is with great sadness that we confirm that the 2020 edition of the London Landmarks Half Marathon will not go ahead on Sunday 29 March 2020.
Along with the rest of the UK, we have been closely monitoring the escalating Coronavirus situation. At a time of such uncertainty and worry, we feel that it is only right that we do not go ahead.
We would like to say how sorry we are, and to thank everyone for your passion, enthusiasm and dedication in the lead up to the event. We know you, our Yellow Army, will be as disappointed as we are. As it is only with your support and commitment that the LLHM has gone from strength to strength each year. We know how hard you have trained and fundraised, and we know how much you were looking forward to the big day. As were we. But we know that you will agree that under the current circumstances, it is the right thing to do.
We are currently working with local authorities to try and secure an alternative date. Please bear with us as we review our options and we will update you as soon as we possibly can.
Thank you for your patience, support and understanding during this extraordinary and challenging situation.
Will the event be rescheduled?
We are currently working with the local authorities to try and secure a new date. Once we have more information about the next steps we will update you as soon as we can.
What will happen to my ballot place?
We are currently working with the local authorities to try and secure a new date. If we do manage to secure a new date, your ballot place will be transferred.
If you are unable to make the new date, we will update you on next steps as soon as we can.
What will happen to my charity place?
We are currently working with the local authorities to try and secure a new date. If we do manage to secure a new date, please get in touch with your charity to confirm if they are able to transfer your place.
If you are unable to make the new date, we recommend that you get in contact with your charity directly to understand their policy and next steps.
I have been fundraising for charity, what happens to my fundraising?
Thank you so much for supporting our charity partners. The LLHM is a 100% not-for profit event, organised by baby charity Tommy’s to benefit 215 charities and their good causes.
Many of our charity partners will have a financial year that ends on the 31st March and will have budgeted to receive fundraising income before this date. We urge you to continue with your fundraising this month to make sure your charity doesn’t suffer as a result of the LLHM not going ahead.
We had hoped that the event would raise £8.5 million for all our charity partners, but we fear that with the event’s cancellation Tommy’s, our Official Charity Partner, and our charity partners may suffer a big fundraising loss. As such, one of our main priorities is to do our very best to reach our £8.5m target.
If you have been fundraising online through JustGiving, your fundraising will automatically have been given to your charity to support their vital work. If you are fundraising offline, please continue to do so and when you have finished fundraising contact your charity partner to pay in the money.
