Our story

Following the success of the LLHM, Tommy’s wanted to create another event that delivered an incredible experience and raised a huge amount for Tommy’s and our charity partners.

The London Landmarks Half Marathon

In its first 5 years the London Landmarks Half Marathon has raised over £32 million for charity, won 14 awards and become a firm favourite in the UK’s running calendar.

The Landmarks team’s ambition has always been to deliver the best event experience and raise as much money as possible for Tommy’s and our events’ charity partners.

With the success of the LLHM, the team looked to develop more Landmarks events and raised their ambitions to the skies!

New Events

In 2020, in response to COVID, we launched the Local Landmarks 10K Challenge, our first virtual running challenge. This was a great success and we want to thank everyone who embraced the challenge during such a turbulent period.

Following this, we launched the Local Landmarks 10K, which is now in its second year and you can take part in February 2023.

An idea was born

With the Landmarks brand successfully established and a desire to be bold and develop a world first event, we looked to the skies for inspiration. We discovered there was no multi-discipline challenge event in the world involving one skyscraper, let alone two.

Nowhere else in the world could you conquer a tower run and then zipwire to or abseil down an iconic skyscraper! We decided to be the first to try to gain permission to put on such an event and provide an exceptional experience to our Landmarkers.

Thanks to the support of our wonderful stakeholders, in particular the City of London, The Leadenhall Building and 30 St Mary Axe, we are so excited to be delivering the inaugural Skyscraper Challenge next year.

We are so excited to launch the Skyscraper Challenge. Our ambition is to raise £1 million for charity and the event promises to be a truly once in a lifetime experience for everyone that joins us. It will create memories that last forever.
