We are here to help with any fundraising queries and we are more than happy to talk through ideas with you! We recommend starting by setting up a fundraising page with Virgin Money Giving and our top fundraising ideas include bake sales and pub quizzes. You can find all our fundraising resources here which includes our paper sponsorship form.
Unfortunately, the London Landmarks Half Marathon was unable to go ahead on Sunday 29 March 2020 due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.
The London Landmarks Team are currently working with local authorities to try to secure an alternative date and we will update you as soon as we possibly can.
You can still register your interest in the event by completing the register interest form, and a member of the team will be in touch.
In the meantime, you could take on the Local Landmarks Challenge. This event is a solo, virtual running challenge around your local landmarks. These are landmarks you choose yourself and could be anything from your local church, castle, park, statue, or even post box. Register here to take part.
Thank you for your patience, support, and understanding during this extraordinary and challenging situation.
Join us for the London Landmarks Half Marathon – a closed-road run across central London. You’ll join 14,000 runners tackling this half marathon. Starting on Pall Mall and finishing by Downing Street, you’ll enjoy 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

We can't fight homelessness without your help
With the support of fundraisers like you, last year we helped 10,324 people and households in London alone through our helpline and face-to-face services.
Every mile run, every drop of sweat, and every pound raised will make a difference.
It was a pleasure running for Shelter. Thanks for giving me a place so I could support your work while taking part in the run. I’d really like to do it again - my aim will be to beat my fundraising from this year!
