Route description
Route description

This is not your average half marathon. With cultural landmarks and heritage spots galore this will likely be one of the most scenic half marathons you ever run.

The race starts on Duncannon Street, finishes by Whitehall and has 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.

The half marathon will be run on closed flat roads and there is a definite chance for a PB.

Well-organised race, with great atmosphere, support and entertainment all along the route, which (as the name implies!) goes past Londons key landmarks ... not that I had time to admire them as I puffed and painted past! Starts in Pall Mall and finishes by Downing Street. Did this, as a Londoner, as my first ever half-marathon. All in all, very pleased with it.

I thought the event was well organised in advance and on the day. Although, I am not sure what happened with start times/starting in the right wave as this seemed very prescriptive pre-event but didn't seem to be put into practice on the day. The course was generally good although the section in the middle around St. Pauls/The City did double back a huge amount which made the run seem long and repetitive in that section - it would be good to spread the route out a bit further - perhaps over to London Bridge and The Shard etc. All in all though - great event, great atmosphere and great volunteers and supporters.

The atmosphere around the route was fantastic with loads of music all along the route, lots of charity cheer stations and lots of spectators. The starting area was slightly confusing, I thought I has missed my wave and then ended up in an earlier wave so timings and directions could have been a bit clearer but the rest of the race, bag drop and finish was well organised.
