Two members of Grantham Running Club took a trip to the Big Smoke to take part in the London Landmark half marathon on Sunday 3rd April. Organised by the baby charity Tommy’s, as the name suggests, the run was all about the views of the city’s landmarks while runners got to explore the capital. It is also the only half marathon to go through both the City of London and the City of Westminster,
Starting at Pall Mall, the route took runners across the city, passing iconic landmarks including St Paul’s Cathedral, The Tower of London, Bank of England, Tower Bridge, Shard and the London Eye. The finish line was on Downing Street.
The event had a party atmosphere with the route adorned with musical performances, DJs, dancers, charity cheer stations and so much more!
GRC members Suzanne Angeloni and Vicki Geeson ran for Tommy’s charity – raising over £800. It was a fantastic day with an incredible atmosphere, super well-organised with 17,177 finishers. Though they didn’t grab a PB on the day, they crossed the finish line together at 2.49.06 and had a truly memorable race.
