Join Team Blesma for the London Landmarks Half Marathon and support our Limbless Veterans!
The London Landmarks Half Marathon will take place on 7th April 2024 and is a closed road, central London 13.1 miles run. It is a unique event as it is the only half marathon that has a route through both the City of London and City of Westminster.
This extraordinary half marathon allows participants to experience the best of London, from its renowned landmarks to its hidden gems. 10,000 runners will begin their journey on Pall Mall, and end it at Downing Street. Along the way, they'll get to take in the sights of Big Ben, St. Paul's Cathedral, Nelson's Column, the River Thames, the Gherkin, the Shard, the Tower of London, and the London Eye.
If this is your first half marathon or you are looking at improving your half marathon time, this is a great event to get involved in, whilst raising money for injured veterans.

Matt Weston was just 20 when he lost three limbs to a bomb blast in Afghanistan.
"All I remember is a flash, my ears ringing, and the sense of falling. I lost both my legs and my right arm below the elbow in the blast. My rehab has been long, slow and difficult. I was in intensive care for a while and was in hospital for three months, and I've just had my fiftieth operation."
"If my chair breaks and I can't repair it, Blesma will get it done. I was in a bad place after my injury but Blesma have been there for me, by my side from day one."
