Here is a little peak into past year’s London Landmarks Half Marathons and what you can expect:

 

BOWLER HAT SEND OFF

London Landmarks Half Marathon runners experienced a race start like no other! The bowler hat was created at Lock & Co, which is located just a few yards from the 2022 race start. To celebrate this quirky fact our troop of bowler hatted volunteers waved our runners off in true London style.

IT’S SHOWTIME!

Joined by the London Show Choir, we celebrated the best of the West End! Did you spot your favourite characters from the stage cheering you on from the side-lines?

POSTAL PAST CELEBRATION

Runners ran past some fantastic heritage postal vans! The Post Office Vehicle Club helped us reveal the fascinating stories behind London’s postal history, and The Noteables Choir kept everyone entertained.

THE BOW BELLS

The Bow Bells of nursery rhyme fame rang to celebrate the event and showcase St Mary-Le-Bow Church. This really was a spine-tingling moment on route!

ROMAN RECEPTION

Gladiator fighting, centurion drilling and plenty of fun celebrating Londinium life in Roman times were had at our Roman Reception! Did you grab a selfie with a gladiator?

A RIGHT ROYAL PARTY

In partnership with the iconic Tower of London, we celebrated its fascinating history and connections to the Royal Family, as well as hosting our very own Royal Street Party. You might have spotted Anne Boleyn or heard our Royal Fanfare!

SUFFRAGIST PAGEANT

Our Suffragists were on the route campaigning for Votes for Women and cheering on runners.

QUIRKY & HIDDEN SIGNAGE

Ever wondered where London’s oldest shop is? Or wanted to discover London’s Roman remains? Our signs pointed out London’s fascinating history and helped runners discover its quirky and hidden secrets.
