Some 14,500 runners, made up of public and charity places, will cross the start line on 23 May 2021 running past some of London’s famous Landmarks raising vital funds for charity.
Lia Fyles, London Landmarks Half Marathon Race Director, said: “What makes the London Landmarks Half Marathon so special is that the event is 100% not-for-profit, with every penny going back to supporting the amazing work done by Tommy’s and over 200 other charities. Next year we hope to raise £8million for charities so we want to encourage as many people as possible to join us and be a part of this incredible event, running for a charity close to their heart.”
Not to be missed
“We wish every prospective runner the best of luck in the ballot. Year after year our event is massively over-subscribed because of the unique central London route taking in the capital’s iconic landmarks. 2021 will be even more special with its one-off theme which will shine a spotlight on the landmark moments of how the nation is coming together during the Covid-19 pandemic. It is one not to be missed.”
“We know how challenging 2020 has been for so many, and we want to use LLHM 2021 as a platform to pay tribute to our nation’s key workers, the true heroes of lockdown along with celebrating the moments of kindness and community spirit and remembering our loved ones who sadly passed away.”
The Memory Mile
Runners can expect to experience The Clapping Tunnel to relive the weekly Clap for Carers, Hero Highway to celebrate the inspirational actions of key workers, Zoom Quiz Corners to remember the classic Zoom quizzes of lockdown and the LLHM Memory Mile, a mile of the route dedicated to running in memory of loved ones who passed away during the pandemic.
“Whilst we cannot predict where we will be as a nation in eight months’ time, we are creating flexible plans to ensure appropriate social distancing measures are in place on race day if required. We know runners may be nervous about returning to a race environment, but rest assured we will always put the safety of our LLHM community first.”
