The London Landmarks Half Marathon, which took place yesterday, has broken its fundraising target of £6m. LLHM is run by the baby and pregnancy charity Tommy’s. It is unconnected to the London Marathon, which is run by London Marathon Events. In this its second year, LLHM had 13,000 runners, including Britain’s Got Talent judge Amanda Holden and 20 other celebrities.
Lia Fyles, LLHM race director, said: “We’re delighted to have reached our £6m fundraising target already, and we expect that figure to rise close to £7m in the next few weeks as runners continue to fundraise. “We’re thrilled to have welcomed thousands of runners to tackle one of the most unique and interactive half marathon routes in the world. We have already received some incredible feedback about the day, with runners loving the music, the cheer stations and the London characters lining the route. “We will be back on 29th March 2020 and pre-registration for the LLHM2020 ballot is already open.”
