Frequently Asked Questions

How do I enter the London Landmarks Half?
There are approx 14,000 places in the LLHM. You can either enter the public ballot in June and if you're successful you’ll be notified by email, or you can get a place with a charity. The main ballot is very popular and is usually open for a week. There's also a second chance ballot, where the organiser can reallocate any unwanted places from the first ballot so it's worth keeping an eye on your email.
At what time does the London Landmarks Half start?
The first wave starts at 9.30am from Pall Mall, but the starting pens can be accessed from Waterloo Place. We'd suggest arriving early to find your way, the bag drop and loos are likely to have large queues.
Is the London Landmarks Half Marathon flat?
LLHM is very flat, and run mostly along the Embankment, Downing Street, Whitehall and the St Paul's. Expect closed roads and lots of sights along the route.

  • Did the Half Marathon in 2019

    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.
  • Did the Half Marathon in 2019

    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.
  • Did the Half Marathon in 2019

    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.
