Bowler Hat Send Off

London Landmarks Half Marathon 2019 runners experienced 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 waved 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 pointed out London's fascinating history and helped 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 2019 runners were cheered on by colourful carnival goers, found themselves in the swinging sixties and were immersed in a game of Monopoly! What sights will runners see in 2020?

Famous Historical Characters

Some of Capital's most famous historic characters and iconic legends of the present were at the finish line on race day. Dick Whittington and Henry VIII worked along side The Pearly Kings and Queens and The Chelsea Pensioners to hand out well deserved medals. Who'll be welcoming you back in 2020?
