Want to be part of the iconic London Landmarks Half Marathon in 2024? Well, it’s time to enter the public ballot for a much-coveted place which opens Wednesday 14 June.
The 2023 event was the BIGGEST yet, with the streets of London becoming awash with colour as over 17,00 runners, and for the first-time wheelchair participants, took to the capital raising money for causes close to their hearts. A staggering £10.3m was raised, the most in the event’s history, to support the incredible work of organisers Tommy’s and its charity partners.
Be part of it all in 2024 and enter the ballot to join the incredible atmosphere along the 13.1-mile course which takes in London’s most iconic landmarks including St Paul’s Cathedral , Big Ben and The London Eye. You will run in the 7th edition of this truly heart-warming half marathon knowing you are making a difference to people’s lives. You have until 21 June to enter and those lucky in the ballot will find out if they have been successful later this month.
LLHM 2024 will take place on Sunday 7th April*, and with the number of race places continuing to increase, your chances to be a part of the next London Landmarks Half Marathon are better than ever.
Lia Fyles, London Landmarks Half Marathon Race Director, says:
“We were truly overwhelmed by popularity of LLHM 2023, and the amazing amount of money raised by all of those who took part.
To officially welcome wheelchair participants felt like really good progression for us in making our event more inclusive and we welcome runners of all abilities to apply through the 2024 ballot. You don’t have to be a fast runner, or super fit to take part. Many of our participants are there for very personal reasons. You just need determination and commitment to take part and raise money for a cause close to your heart and the atmosphere and crowd will carry you around the route.
It's exciting to launch the public ballot today and we wish everyone who enters the best of luck! If you aren’t successful, remember charity places are available so you can still join us on what is set to be an unbelievable edition of the London Landmarks Half. We can’t wait to see you there!”
