Bowler Hat Send Off

London Landmarks Half Marathon 2020 runners will experience a race start like no other! The bowler hat was created at Lock & Co, which is located just a few yards from our race start. To celebrate this quirky fact our troop of bowler hatted volunteers will wave our runners off in true London style!

Quirky & Hidden Signage

Ever wondered where London's oldest shop is? Or wanted to discover London's Roman remains? Our signs point out London's fascinating history and help runners discover its quirky and hidden secrets.

Themed Cheer Stations

Each year our themed cheer stations give a glimpse into London's incredible history. In 2020 runners will be cheered on by circus performers, immersed in 90's nostalgia and meet the dragons of the City of London.

Famous Historical Characters

Some of Capital's most famous historic characters and iconic legends of the present will beat the finish line on race day. Dick Whittington and Henry VIII are likely to be found along side The Pearly Kings and Queens and The Chelsea Pensioners handing out well deserved medals.
