Our capital city over taken over on Sunday by 10,000 runners and celebrities in the first ever London Landmarks Half Marathon.

Racing from Pall Mall to Downing Street along a route designed to take in as many attractions as possible, including Big Ben, St Paul’s Cathedral, Nelson’s Column, the Gherkin, the Shard, the Tower of London and the London Eye. Radzi Chinyanganya and Rob Walker took us through all the action.

Runners start in waves, with Wave 1 setting off at 9.30am and the final wave at 10.10am.

Runners will start at Pall Mall and take in 12 landmarks over the 13.1-mile route before finishing by Downing Street, going from east to west and across the Thames twice.

They will head back over the Golden Jubilee bridges and past Somerset House and St. Paul's Cathedral before snaking back towards Holborn before approaching the City of London.

A zig-zag route around the Bank of England and past Monument will give runners a view of the Cheese Grater and The Gerkin before hitting the most easterly point outside the Tower of London at mile 10.

The final three miles takes runners along the Thames before hitting Big Ben and finishing by Downing Street.
