London Landmarks Half Marathon

Run through closed roads in the City of London and City of Westminster in support of The Royal British Legion.

Back for it's second year, the London Landmarks Half Marathon is a closed road, central London run and is the only half marathon to go through both the City of London and City of Westminster.

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.

Run for Team Legion to experience a phenomenal half marathon and help raise vital funds for our Armed Forces community.
