London Landmarks Half Marathon

Dogs Trust runners at London Landmarks Half Marathon 2018

London Landmarks Half Marathon logo The event is not your average half marathon. From cultural landmarks and heritage to the city's quirky and hidden secrets, runners get to explore the capital on a route like no other!

 The race starts on Pall Mall, finishes by Downing Street and has fabulous views of London’s most iconic landmarks including Big Ben, St Paul’s Cathedral, Nelson’s Column, the Gherkin, the Shard, the Tower of London and the London Eye.

Important Update – Due to current covid-19 crisis in the UK the 2020 London Landmarks Half Marathon has been postponed. The event organisers are currently securing a new date for later in the year. All participants that have already registered to run in March will be deferred to the new date.
