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.

The organising team would like to wish you best of luck and promise that we will do everything we can to make this race the most enjoyable one you have entered this year.

If you only enter one half marathon this year, make it the Manchester Half Marathon.

One of the flattest and fastest around. The only 41m of elevation gain and a 2 mile + finishing straight, we expect to see some very fast times here.

Great entertainment, outstanding crowd support and glorious finish at Emirates Old Trafford, the home of Lancashire Cricket Club, plus a medal and a technical t-shirt for all finishers!

To give you an idea of how fast this course is, 74% of the first 50 finishers ran a personal best or a season best. 56% of the top 250 ran a PB or SB. This is your half marathon to literally smash it!

We predict that the zombies will attack Sheffield on Saturday 27th October 2018, so its up to you to gather your troops and take on the zombies. The undead will be lurking in the shadows of the trees for an estimated 5km. Are you ready to run for your life? Each runner will be equipped with a utility life belt which contains three life tags. The zombies throughout the course will be aiming to steal your life tags and youll have to be nimble and quick to make it past the infected hordes. If you lose all three dont worry the virus is slow to take effect and you should have time to complete the race. You will still be infected, but our decontamination team will do their best to reverse the effects at the finish line. We promise: 1. Zombies will only ever take one life tag at a time 2. There will be no intentional physical contact between Zombies and Runners 3. Zombies will never intentionally obstruct you The decontamination team will meet you at the finish with your medal and with a FREE glass of celebratory decontamination fizz. There will also be plenty of cake to replace some of the energy you've burned, and your own Survival Certificate. Run on your own, as a pair or in a team. Totally traffic-free, fast and flat route.
