Tommy’s, organisers of the London Landmarks Half Marathon have announced that the event has moved to Sunday 1 August 2021.
The organisers believe moving the race is the most sensible option to ensure the event goes ahead in 2021.
Ensuring a safe race day
Race Director, Lia Fyles, explains: “We have been working incredibly hard to try and deliver the race in a socially distanced format in May, ensuring a safe race day for everyone. However, in light of the Prime Minister’s recent announcement we believe it’s the right decision that we move the 2021 event to later on in the year when all restrictions will hopefully have been lifted.”
“By moving to August, we are optimistic that we will able to deliver the 2021 LLHM in all its glory. What makes our event so special are the unique experiences lining the race route and with restrictions planned to be lifted by the summer, LLHM 2021 should be the unforgettable event we all know and love.”
Runners automatically deferred
Around 14,500 runners are set to cross the start line on Sunday 1st August in this one-off summer spectacular which takes in London’s most iconic Landmarks. All runners with a confirmed place in LLHM 2021 will automatically be deferred to the new date.
The 100% not for profit event, which is organised by baby charity Tommy’s to benefit themselves and many other good causes, hopes to raise in excess of £6 million for around 200 charities in 2021.
With the public ballot closed, the only way to secure a place in this hugely popular, iconic race is to run for one of the 200 LLHM 2021 charity partners. Charities with places include Tommy’s, Prostate Cancer UK, the British Heart Foundation, Guide Dogs, Alzheimer’s Research UK and Cancer Research UK.
