Half marathon

Date: 6 Apr 2025

Fundraising pledge: £350

Join us for a 13.1-mile run around London and become a mito superstar!

The London Landmarks Half Marathon is one of the events we look forward to the most! It’s a closed-road, central London run and the only half marathon to go through both the City of London and the City of Westminster. Last time was an amazing event and in 2025 it will be bigger and better!

Starting on Pall Mall and finishing by Downing Street, you’ll have 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. One of the reasons we love this race so much is that it’s more like a history lesson with your trainers on!

Not your average half marathon, the event’s organisers are proud to involve London-wide schools, boroughs, community groups, cultural organisations, sports clubs and businesses both in developing the event and on the day in creating an unforgettable atmosphere.

What you’ll receive from The Lily Foundation:

  • fundraising pack with tips and ideas
  • sponsorship form
  • Lily performance running top
  • ongoing support
  • thank you certificate


Registration is free. We just ask you to pledge to raise £350 to help our charity fight mitochondrial disease.
