Immerse yourself in London’s history and culture as you take on a half marathon for Pilgrims!
The London Landmarks Half Marathon is London’s only half marathon to offer you the chance to run through the City of London and City of Westminster on closed roads. The LLHM route passes London’s most spectacular views and attractions and immerses participants in London’s quirky and hidden history. With a route lined with amazing entertainment, for you and your supporters, this event is not to be missed!
Join #TeamPilgrims with your ballot place on Sunday 2 April 2023, and help us to continue being there for thousands of people in east Kent living with an incurable illness.
The LLHM route
Stand with 16,000 fellow runners at the iconic start line on Pall Mall alongside the famous Trafalgar Square, before passing famous landmarks such as Nelson’s Column, Somerset House, St Paul’s Cathedral, Bank of England, the Walkie Talkie, the Cheese Grater, The Gherkin, the Monument, the Tower of London, Tower Bridge and The Shard, before being rewarded with a stately finish on Whitehall just outside Downing Street, with views of London’s must-see icons Big Ben and the London Eye.
The LLHM showcases culture and communities from across the capital. As a runner, you’ll be entertained by a diverse soundtrack of pumping DJ’s, sensational samba and uplifting jazz to keep you motivated throughout your 13.1 miles. Runners have the chance to experience outstanding performances from rising stars, including talented youth groups, charities, community groups and schools from across London. And to top it off, there are amazing performances of vibrant swing dance, mesmerising street dances and graceful contemporary too. All this entertainment will be sure to help the miles tick down.
