London Landmarks Half Marathon 2020

Join us

Join us and celebrate the culture and spirit of London along this fantastic city centre route. You'll be supported by grand themed cheer points giving along the way, discover quirky facts at every mile marker and get to explore some of London's hidden landmarks.

How to enter

Public entry to the London Landmarks Half Marathon 2020 will be selected through ballot which opens on Tuesday 18 June on the event website. If you miss out on a place in the ballot then our charity places will be available for registration once the results have been announced.

Ballot opens: Tuesday 18th June, pm

Ballot closes: Tuesday 25th June, 12 noon

Main ballot announced: Thursday 27th June

Main ballot period for accepting place by completing registration and paying for it: Thursday 27th June – Thursday 4 July, noon

Second chance ballot announced: Friday 5th July

Second chance ballot period for accepting place by completing registration and paying for it: Friday 5th July - Thursday 11th July, noon.

How does the second chance ballot work?

All ballot entrants who are unsuccessful in the main ballot will automatically be entered into the second chance ballot for free. This allows London Landmarks Half Marathon to reallocate any unwanted first chance ballot places to others.

If you secure a place in the ballot...

If you'd like to use your place to join Team Macmillan, then please let us know once the ballot results are announced by visiting this page and clicking the 'I have my own place' button to join the team and order your running kit.

If you miss out in the ballot...

If you don't get a place in the ballot then you can still take part in the London Landmarks Half Marathon by registering for one of our charity places.

Our charity places are a great way to make a difference to people affected by cancer with every step. We ask that you pledge to raise a minimum of £350 in sponsorship (excluding Gift Aid) and there’s a £35 registration fee.

Registration for our charity places will open once the ballot results have been announced.

The registration fee is payable to Macmillan Cancer Support Trading Limited which is wholly owned subsidiary of Macmillan Cancer Support. Macmillan Cancer Support Trading Limited donates 100% of its profits to Macmillan Cancer Support each year.
