The London Landmarks Half Marathon has been postponed to Sunday 1 August 2021. All Alzheimer's Society runners have been contacted with next steps and further information.
We will, of course, continue to offer all our usual training and fundraising support throughout this time. You’ll have until 8 weeks after your event date to reach your minimum fundraising target.
Please drop us an email if you have any further questions.
This is is not your average half marathon - from cultural landmarks to the city's quirky hidden secrets, runners will get to explore the capital on a route like no other!
Runners will start on Duncannon Street, 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.
We'd love to have you on team Alzheimer's Society. You'll be helping to change the lives of people affected by dementia. We will support you through every step of your journey.
