It solely price £15 to enter and all registration income go to the charity Tommy’s to avoid wasting infants’ lives.

What’s the route?

It’s additionally open to all ages, so it’s a really inclusive occasion. (I feel I’ll most likely encourage M to come back together with me. She will stroll, run or be pushed as a lot as she likes). The landmarks don’t should be nationally-recognised areas. They are often so simple as a church, bridge, park, statue or pub.

The native Landmarks 10K Problem is organised by the organisers of the London Landmarks Half Marathon, following the recognition of their digital Native Landmarks Problem in 2020

“Not everyone can take part in the London Landmarks Half Marathon. The distance can be daunting for some, especially if they aren’t quite ready for a half marathon or perhaps, they are still nervous about taking part in large organised events. The popularity of our virtual challenge in 2020 really showed that there is an appetite for a shorter event that can be completed locally to home but in the same spirit as the LLHM. People can run, walk, wheelchair or even push a buggy on their run. I can’t wait to see pictures from the routes people take all across the country exploring their local landmarks!”
