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.

Take on the London Landmarks Half Marathon and feel amazing about giving help and hope to people living with dementia. 

The general ballot has now closed. If you are unsuccessful in gaining a place, you can apply for one of our charity places. If you secure your own place in the ballot, you can use your place to run for us - we'd love to have you on the team!
