Run your local landmarks 

This year, the London Landmarks Half Marathon team are challenging you to run your local landmarks. 

The challenge is a solo, virtual run, around your local landmarks. Your local landmarks could be anything from your local church, castle, park, statue or even post-box. This means that you can still race, raise awareness and funds for Sarcoma UK and you'll also earn an exclusive medal. 

It is open to everyone, whether you have a place in LLHM 2020 or not. The challenge doesn't have to be completed in one go. Distances over 5k qualify for the challenge and you can run the total distance over multiple runs and multiple days until 3rd May 2020.
