London Landmarks Half Marathon

The route

The LLHM offers a fabulous central London half marathon route adorned with route activations, musical performances, DJs, dancers, themed cheer stations and more!

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.
