London Landmarks Half Marathon fever has definitely hit the UK as organisers report an overwhelming demand for ballot places after the close of the public ballot for the 2025 event taking place on Sunday 6th April.
Tommy’s, the UK’s largest pregnancy and baby loss charity, recorded an unprecedented number of applications at noon yesterday after the highly anticipated public ballot closed after 7 days. Registrations exceeded the total number of applications received for the 2024 event by 83%, with the 2024 figure being smashed after just 24hrs.
Lia Fyles, London Landmarks Half Marathon Race Director, says: “WOW! The response to the 2025 ballot far has exceeded all our expectations, it’s amazing. With the support of our partners across London we have worked hard to make the LLHM a truly welcoming, wonderful experience for all who take part and these numbers reflect the growing love and interest for our event and in running. LLHM is a real celebration of everything that is so wonderful about running and the growth year on year demonstrates how running can truly bring people together to benefit others and raise millions of pounds for charity. 2025 looks set to be our best LLHM yet and I hope that those who aren’t successful in the ballot will chose to run for one of our many charity partners and be part of our very special day!”
Those lucky enough to secure a much-coveted ballot place will be informed in early July and join 20,000 people on race day who will raise an amazing £15m for charity. London Landmarks Half Marathon is 100% not for profit. Every step taken contributes to supporting Tommy’s and their 550+ charity partners including; Alzheimer's Society, Cancer Research UK, Alzheimer’s Research UK, Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity, Prostate Cancer UK and Shelter.
