Spectating at LLHM 2021
We're happy for runners' loved ones to come and support on race day, however we ask that runners consider limiting the number of supporters they bring. We also encourage all spectators to take a lateral flow test 24 hours before race day and only attend if they are safe to do so.
Whilst the event will take place shortly after the government's planned step 4 reopening on 19 July, we will still be operating a covid-secure race day. This means that there will be some safety measures in place that we kindly ask spectators to respect. We're so grateful for your help and cooperation in helping to ensure race day is a a safe experience for everyone.
Please maintain social distancing whilst moving around the event site and respect other spectators, runners and charity cheer stations on the route. Please be aware that all charity cheer stations are only permitted to have 6 cheerers, so we would suggest your supporters avoid joining your chosen charity at the event.
Please see our Covid Safety page for full details of our measures.
BEST PLACES TO WATCH THE RACE
Please avoid congested areas like the Start and Finish Line. We recommend cheering in areas along the route where there is ample and wide space such as the Embankment, Bank Junction or Holborn.
There will are numerous opportunities to see the runners, including lots of live music and plenty of route entertainment to see. Runners, make sure to tell your supporters what you will be wearing and agree beforehand a time and place where they can expect to see you.
Getting Around During the Race
With road closures in place, it's important to plan how your supporters get around. We recommend they use the London Underground and visit tfl.gov.uk to plan their journey. To find more details about road closures, please click here.

Meeting your runner post-race
The area around the Finish Line will be incredibly busy after the race with thousands of runners. We highly recommend arranging an alternative post-race meeting point in an open green space away from the Finish and Bag Drop area. Please agree a meeting point with your runner in advance.
