Be a half marathon hero for Team Chestnut in 2021!

While running past some of London’s most spectacular landmarks, the 2021 event will be shining a light on how we are coming together as a nation during the Covid-19 pandemic and will celebrate the grand, quirky and hidden landmark moments of 2020.

The race starts by The Strand, finishes by Downing Street and has fabulous views of London’s most iconic landmarks including Big Ben, St Paul’s Cathedral, Nelson’s Column, the Gherkin, the Shard, the Tower of London and the London Eye.

Make a difference with Team Chestnut

Use your place to run for Team Chestnut and help families during this pandemic, who are coping with caring for their poorly children at this stressful time, take a well-earned break and make isolated families feel less alone.

Keeping you COVID safe

From moving the start area to give the event more space, creating a new pen system, adding one way systems for bag drops and toilets, and extended road closures the organisers have been putting more measures in place to keep the event COVID safe in 2021. You can see all the measures being put in place on the London Landmarks website.
