Important Travel Information: 

The road between Menai Bridge and Beaumaris (A545) will be closed to traffic from 08.30am and re-opens at 12.30.  For this reason there will be a strict cut off at 11.15am at Gallows Point in Beaumaris (approx. 10 miles).

The Menai Bridge itself will also be closed between 8.30am and 10.00am so you will need to use the Britannia Bridge. There will be a well signposted diversion for those not familiar to the area.

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 City of Westminster and the first event will take place on the 23 March 2019.

The event is not your average half marathon! From cultural landmarks and heritage to the city's quirky and hidden secrets, runners will get to explore the capital on a route like no other!

10,000 runners will start on Pall Mall, finish by Downing Street and have fabulous views of Londons most iconic landmarks including Big Ben, St Pauls Cathedral, Nelsons Column, the Gherkin, the Shard, the Tower of London and the London Eye.

The event will also deliver a pan-London community engagement programme and involve London wide schools, boroughs, community groups, cultural organisations, sports clubs and businesses in developing the event and on the day.

The event is owned by baby charity, Tommy's who came up with the idea in 2014. Tommy's are delighted to be launching this exciting new event with the support of Westminster City Council and the City of London Corporation.
