When is LLHM 2022?

London Landmarks Half Marathon 2022 will take place on Sunday 3rd April.

How can I take part in LLHM 2022?

The LLHM 2022 Public Place Ballot has now been announced, but you can still take part in LLHM 2022 by supporting one of our fantastic charity partners.

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 

Alternatively, we have 300 charity partners with places in the event who you can find out more about here

How do I confirm my charity place?

All charity runners need to complete their official LLHM registration through our online console

Once you have signed up with your charity, they will send you a link to complete your official LLHM registration. Look out for an email from [email protected]   

Throughout November we will be giving all charity partners access to our online LLHM console, where they can manage their charity places and send registration links to all their runners. 

Some charities send out their invites to runners in batches, so don’t worry if you have not received your registration link yet.

All charity runners must complete their official registration before 12 Noon/Midday on Wednesday 16th February 2022. Registrations will not be accepted after this date and you will not be able to take part on race day. Please note, your charity may ask you to complete your registration earlier than this date so they can support you in advance of race day.

For further information and support on completing your official registration, please read our Runner Guide.

How old do I have to be enter the LLHM? 

You must be 17 or older to take part in LLHM 2022.

Race Day

Is there a Bag Drop?

Yes, and more details will be released nearer to the event.

Is there a cut off time? 

Yes, after 4 hours the roads will re-open and runners will be asked to continue on the pavement.

How will my time be recorded?

Your time will be recorded with UHF Chip technology. Your finish time will be texted to you after crossing the finish line and will be available on the London Landmarks Half Marathon website.

Can I use headphones to listen to my music during the LLHM?

We strongly discourage the use of any equipment that acts as an impediment to hearing or concentration when competing. This includes, but is not limited to, mobile telephones, personal stereos and MP3 players. We cannot be responsible for accidents resulting from taking part with such equipment. We will have the most fantastic entertainment lined up on the route that you won't want to miss.

Will there be pacers?

Yes, there will be pacers across a variety of average speeds in some of the waves.

Can I attempt a Guinness World Record?

We would love to have you attempt a World Record with us! We have a webpage about how to sign up for a World Record attempt and with some suggestions of records to attempt. You can find that here. Please also get in touch with us at [email protected] if you have any questions.

Can I run in fancy dress?

Yes you can – we love to see runners in fancy dress! Please be aware of the cut off times to ensure that your fancy dress outfit will not impair your ability to complete the course in this time. If you plan to run in a quirky costume or aim to break a World Record, please get in touch with us at [email protected] and let us know.

Can I take part in my wheelchair?

Unfortunately, we are not currently able to accommodate wheelchair athletes but this is something that we are hoping to introduce in subsequent years.
