The idea of the London Landmarks Half Marathon was born in 2014 when baby charity, Tommy’s embarked on a strategy to double the amount of money they raise annually from £4m to £8m. After evaluating the different fundraising options available to them, they decided that launching a new mass participation event was the best way forward.
With their offices based in the heart of the City, Tommy’s noticed a big gap in the market. A central London half marathon taking in the City and all of the capital’s landmarks did not exist! Tommy’s took the bold decision to pursue developing and launching a new central London half marathon to benefit both themselves, and many other charities too.
The route shines a spotlight on not only London’s grand iconic landmarks, but also its quirky and hidden history and gems and uses the route as a platform for bringing the City’s history to life and to celebrate it’s wonderful culture and heritage.
LLHM 2023 saw the largest ever event and welcomed over 17,000 runners, 450 charities and 40,000 spectators.
We are really grateful for the support of everyone who chooses to run in any type of event for ECHO and raise money – the reality is we receive no government or NHS funding to carry out our work and we therefore do need to raise money in order to continue supporting heart families.
ECHO is there for families from the moment of diagnosis, throughout every stage of their heart journey. With your help, we can continue to provide practical and emotional support and information to parents, carers, children, young people and their families at times when they need it most.
Your fundraising can help us to support families by phone and email, provide guides and resources to help families understand what to expect, send ECHO Care packs for families staying in hospital while their child is poorly, and run online sessions for young people.
