Join Team PTSD UK for the 2022 LLHM!

⭐⭐You can run the London Landmarks Half Marathon to support PTSD UK!⭐⭐

This event is not your average half marathon! From cultural landmarks and heritage to the city’s quirky and hidden secrets, runners get to explore the capital on a route like no other – and we’re so excited to be able to offer our supporters the amazing experience of running in this unique half marathon on 3rd April 2022!

The race starts by The Strand, finishes by Downing Street and has fabulous views of London’s most iconic landmarks including Big Ben, St Paul’s Cathedral, Nelson’s Column, the Gherkin, the Shard, the Tower of London and the London Eye – and a huge PTSD UK team will be there to cheer you on at our dedicated Cheer Station!!!

It’s more than just a run!

The event celebrates London’s grand, quirky and hidden history like never before. Discover the birthplace of the bowler hat, learn more about Roman life beneath the City’s cobbled streets and find out why Waterloo Bridge is known as Ladies Bridge. Check out the map below to find out more about the quirky and hidden landmarks along the route.

Some of the incredible things you can look forward to as you run:

  • London Landmarks Half Marathon runners experience a race start like no other! The bowler hat was created at Lock & Co, which is located just a few yards from our race start. To celebrate this quirky fact our troop of bowler hatted volunteers wave our runners off in true London style.
  • The Bow Bells of nursery rhyme fame will ring to celebrate the event and showcase St Mary-Le-Bow Church. This really is a spine-tingling moment on route!
  • Gladiator fighting, centurion drilling and plenty of fun celebrating Londinium life in Roman times will be had at our Roman Reception! This is your chance to high-five a gladiator…
  • Ever wondered where London’s oldest shop is? Or wanted to discover London’s Roman remains? Our signs point out London’s fascinating history and help runners discover its quirky and hidden secrets.
  • Each year our themed cheer stations give a glimpse into London’s incredible history. Previously, runners have been cheered on by circus performers, immersed in 90’s nostalgia and meet the dragons of the City of London.

Treatments for PTSD

It is possible for PTSD to be successfully treated many years after the traumatic event occurred, which means it is never too late to seek help. For some, the first step may be watchful waiting, then exploring therapeutic options such as individual or group therapy – but the main treatment options in the UK are psychological treatments such as Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprogramming (EMDR) and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT).

Traumatic events can be very difficult to come to terms with, but confronting and understanding your feelings and seeking professional help is often the only way of effectively treating PTSD. You can find out more in the links below, or here.
