LLHM 2025 BALLOT

HOW DO I ENTER THE 2025 BALLOT?

The LLHM 2025 ballot has now closed. If you didn't enter the only way to get a place is with one of our fantastic charity partners

WHEN DID THE 2025 BALLOT OPEN? 

The LLHM 2025 Ballot opened on Tuesday 18 June.

WHEN DID THE 2025 BALLOT CLOSE?

The LLHM 2025 Ballot closed at 12 noon on Tuesday 25 June - we cannot accept any entries after this deadline under any circumstances. 

WHAT IS A BALLOT PLACE RUNNER?

A ballot place runner is someone who has entered the ballot and is successful in gaining a place. Some charities call these ‘Own Place Runners’. The place belongs to the individual who entered the ballot and was successful. This is different from a charity place runner, who's place has been purchased by a charity and belongs to that organisation. You can still use your ballot place to raise money for the charity of your choice.  

DO I HAVE TO PAY TO ENTER THE BALLOT?

The LLHM 2025 ballot was to enter. You only need to pay for your place if you are successful.

HOW MUCH DO I HAVE TO PAY IF I'M SUCCESSFUL IN THE BALLOT? 

A LLHM 2025 ballot place costs £63.50+ £2.49 booking fee. Any profit from your entry fee will go to baby charity Tommy's, who organise the London Landmarks Half Marathon.

Tommy’s exists to stop the heartbreak and devastation of baby loss and make pregnancy and birth safe – for everyone. 

WHEN WILL THE BALLOT BE ANNOUNCED? 

The LLHM 2025 main ballot results were announced on Wednesday 3 July 2024 and everyone who entered has been emailed their result. Please check your inbox, junk and spam folders and look for an email from [email protected].

If you don't receive your result right away, please don't worry as they are sent out in batches. Please kindly wait until tomorrow morning and if you still haven't received your result don't hesitate to get in touch with our team at [email protected] who will be happy to help.

WHAT DO I HAVE TO DO IF I'M SUCCESSFUL IN THE MAIN BALLOT? 

If you are successful in the main ballot you need to confirm that you would like your place by paying for it by the deadline detailed  in your congratulation email. If you miss this deadline you will lose your ballot place and be ineligible for the second chance ballot. We cannot make exceptions under any circumstances.   .  

WHAT DO I DO IF I'M UNSUCCESSFUL IN THE MAIN BALLOT?

If you are unsuccessful in the main ballot you will automatically be entered into the second chance ballot for free. There are also hundreds of official LLHM 2025 charity partners who have places in the event who would be so grateful for your support. 

Tommy's have the largest charity team and would love you to welcome you onboard. Tommy's are offering free entry onto their team with a fundraising pledge of £350. Your support would help fund lifesaving research into baby loss and provide pregnancy advice at a time of great need. 

You can secure your free place with Team Tommy's now and if you are successful in the ballot you can cancel your charity place with them. It's win win! 

Alternatively, we have over 550 charity partners with places in the event here

I HAVE ALREADY SIGNED UP FOR A CHARITY PLACE, BUT I'VE ALSO BEEN SUCCESSFUL IN THE BALLOT, WHAT SHOULD I DO?

Congratulations on securing both a ballot place and a charity place for LLHM 2025. It is up to you what you choose to do, there are two options: 

  1. Keep your charity place, and don’t redeem your ballot place.  
     
  2. Redeem your ballot place and support a charity with your ballot place instead. This means the charity can give your charity place to someone else, and you can still fundraise for them with your ballot place.  

This is the ideal scenario for your charity as they will now have space for another charity place runner and you will be supporting them as a ballot runner. It could mean more fundraising for them and more success for the charity overall. 

If you decide to keep your ballot place, you will need to complete your registration by 12 noon on Thursday 11 July and you will also need to tell your charity that you no longer need your charity place. 

HOW DOES THE SECOND CHANCE BALLOT WORK?

Following the announcement of the main ballot, all unsuccessful ballot applicants will automatically be entered into a second chance ballot for free. This will allow us to re-allocate any unclaimed main ballot places to others. If you are successful in the second chance ballot you need to confirm that you would like your place by paying for it by the deadline detailed in your congratulation email. If you are unsuccessful the only way to get a place in the event now is through one of our charity partners listed here. 

CAN I ENTER THE BALLOT MULTIPLE TIMES? 

No, entries are limited to one per person. 

I SHARE AN EMAIL ADDRESS, CAN WE ENTER UNDER THE SAME EMAIL? 

No, our system only allows for one registration per email. If you share an email address with somebody else and you both wish to enter, one of you will need to set up a new email address to enter with as each person will need to enter using an individual email address. 

I MISSED THE BALLOT ENTRY DEADLINE, CAN I STILL TAKE PART?

Yes, if you missed the entry deadline then the only way to take part is with one of our fantastic charity partners.

WHAT IS A CHARITY PLACE RUNNER?

Charity place runners are those who sign up to run for a charity and agree to raise a minimum sponsorship pledge. Charities buy places in LLHM and then recruit people to raise money for their cause - in return runners gain entry into the event using one of these charity places. 

If you have a charity place and are unsure of the terms of conditions it is best to contact your charity directly, as every charity manages and administers their places differently. LLHM cannot make any decisions about a charity place.  

I TOLD A CHARITY I HAVE AN 'OWN PLACE' OR 'BALLOT PLACE' - WHAT DOES THIS MEAN? 

This means that you entered the ballot and were successful in getting a place and would like to use this to raise money for them. If you did not enter the ballot, or were unsuccessful in the ballot then you do not have an 'own place' or 'ballot place' and the only way to take part will be by using one of the charity places that our partners have purchased in the event.

It is very important that you do not tell a charity that you have your own place if you do not, otherwise they will think you already have a place in the event and will not allocate one to you, meaning you will not be able to take part.

HOW DO I APPLY TO BE A CHARITY PARTNER?

If you are interested in becoming a charity partner please visit our webpage here. LLHM 2025 charity partner applications have now closed, but our charity team would love to hear from you about partnering for future events.
