London Landmarks Half Marathon

The London Landmarks Half Marathon is a brand new, closed road central London run. It is the only half marathon to go through both the City of London and the City of Westminster and the first event will be taking place on the 25 March 2018.

10,000 runners will start on Pall Mall, finish by Downing Street and have 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.

The event is not your average half marathon and is definitely not one to miss! The run will celebrate London’s wonderful culture and heritage as runners and spectators will discover London’s ‘quirky & hidden’ secrets, experience Roman themed water stations and be cheered on by suffragettes.


Give the Gift of Water

With over 800,000 people dying from water-related illnesses each year, unsafe water is the single biggest obstacle to the progression and health of communities across the developing world.

Muslim Hands works worldwide to provide families and communities with access to clean water and appropriate sanitary facilities. We work with a wide range of communities, varying our approach to reflect the specific needs of our beneficiaries. Assessing the need for water on an individual basis, we tailor our solutions to address specific problems.

With your support, Muslim Hands will be able to continue to provide clean drinking water to the world’s poorest communities around the world insha'Allah.

Q. Where will the run take place?

A. The start line will be on Pall Mall but entry in will be from Trafalgar Square where the bag drop is located.

The finish line will be on Whitehall, very close to the junction with Downing Street.

Q. Will there be a secure area to store a bag?

A. Yes. The Bag Drop Area will be in Trafalgar Square, so if you plan on leaving a bag please allow extra time as there will be queues (plan for at least 15 mins in this area). Please note the event organisers WILL ONLY BE ACCEPTING OFFICIAL LONDON LANDMARKS HALF MARATHON DRAWSTRING BAGS. These are included in your race pack, which will be sent out as detailed above. We are sorry but other bags including suitcases, backpacks, satchels, briefcases, or sports bags will not be accepted.

Q. When will the race packs be sent out?

A. Packs will be posted out by the event organisers approximately four weeks before the event. Please ensure that you provide the correct address.

Runners from overseas can collect their race pack from the event help desk the day before the event. If for whatever reason your pack doesn’t arrive please head to the event information desk, where the event organiser's team will be able to issue you with a new pack.

Q. How will my time be recorded?

A. Your time will be recorded with UHF Chip technology. Your finish time will be texted to you after crossing the finish line and will be available on the London Landmarks Half Marathon website.

If for whatever reason, your timing chip malfunctions or you think your running time is incorrect, please get in touch with the event organiser directly or follow the instructions provided on the results section of the London Landmarks Half Marathon website.
