Baby charity Tommy’s, organisers of the London Landmarks Half Marathon, has announced that the event will not go ahead as planned on Sunday, March 29, 2020.
Along with the rest of the UK, Tommy’s have been closely monitoring the escalating Coronavirus situation. At a time of such uncertainty and worry, they feel that it is only right to not go ahead.
Race Director Lia Fyles said: “We would like to say how sorry we are, and to thank everyone for your passion, enthusiasm and dedication in the lead up to the event. We know you, our Yellow Army, will be as disappointed as we are.
“We know how hard you have trained and fundraised and we know how much you were looking forward to the big day. As were we. But we know that you will agree that under the current circumstances, it is the right thing to do”
The event organisers are currently working with the local authorities to try and secure an alternative date and further updates will be provided in due course.
The LLHM is a 100 per cent not-for profit event, organised by baby charity Tommy’s to benefit many other good causes. The event was predicted to raise £8.5 million for numerous national charity partners.
