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 closed, 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 and if you are successful in the ballot you can cancel your charity place with them. It's a win win! 

Alternatively, we have over 270 charity partners with places in the event who you can find out more about here

When will the ballot be announced?

The LLHM 2022 main ballot has now been announced and results have been communicated to all entrants. 

If you are successful you will need to pay £57.50 for your place and any profit from your entry fee will go to baby charity, Tommy's who organise the London Landmarks Half Marathon. Tommy's exist to save babies' lives through funding research into miscarriage, premature birth and stillbirth.

The key dates are as follows:

  • Wednesday 15th September: Main ballot announced
  • Wednesday 15th September - Thursday 23rd September, noon: Period for successful runners to accept their place and pay for it
  • Monday 27th September: Second chance ballot announced
  • Monday 27th September - Monday 4th October, noon: Period for successful runners to accept their place and pay for it

What is the process if I am successful?

If you are successful in either the main ballot or second chance ballot we will send you a link which is unique to you (i.e. it will not work if you forward it on to someone else) which you will need to complete. This includes making the payment for your place of £57.50 + booking fee. You only need to pay for your place if you are successful and all profits will go to Tommy's who organise the LLHM.

If you are successful in either ballot you need to complete your registration and pay for your place within the timeframe we specify, otherwise you will lose your place.

Will there be a second chance ballot? 

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 unwanted main ballot places to others. This will be announced on Monday 27th September 2021.

How old do I have to be enter the LLHM? 

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

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.
