London Landmarks Half Marathon

Take on this standout race and take in some of the most iconic sights London has to offer. Join 17,000 runners on the start line at Pall Mall, and wind your way past St Paul’s Cathedral, The Gherkin, The Tower of London, then down to The London Eye and Big Ben, before crossing the finish line by Downing Street. Along route, you’ll be entertained by a West End Choir, cheered on by historical figures, and DJs from London’s LGBTQIA+ community will really get the party started.

Sha’s London Landmarks Half Marathon story

Sha suffered a massive deterioration in his sight in August 2021 and turned to running to help with his mental health. He focused his training on completing the 2023 London Landmarks Half Marathon, which he finished with his guide runner, Terri. Sha said:

"It goes to show anything is possible even with the most difficult circumstances. We raised a lot of money for Guide Dogs - a charity close to my heart. The atmosphere and crowd participation was incredible and while I could not see anything I could feel all the smiles and love.”
