The London Landmarks Half Marathon (LLHM) is proud to announce it has won Medal of the Year after a public vote on the Running Bible platform.
After winning the award for the ‘Medal of the Month’ in March, the LLHM finishers medal from the inaugural event went up against 11 other ‘Medal of the Month’ winners, coming out on top and receiving plenty of praise from runners for its unique opening design and attention to detail.
The LLHM medal was well loved from the moment it was revealed ahead of the inaugural event last year. The medal, which features the London Eye, the official logo and ‘Inaugural Event’ on the front, opens up to reveal an intricate design of all the major landmarks runners pass on the route. Runners could also opt to purchase an i-TAB, featuring their name and finishing time on the inside of the medal.
Inspired by Charlie and the Chocolate factory, ten of these medals had ‘Golden Tickets’ hidden inside and ten lucky runners were surprised as they crossed the finish line with Golden Ticket Prizes including Afternoon Tea at the Savoy and a Wimbledon Tennis Experience.
For 2019, the LLHM finishers medal promises to be just as impressive and once again 10 of the medals will contain Golden Tickets. Sunday 24th March will see 13,000 runners tackle the 13.1 mile course, again weaving through the Capital’s most famous landmarks as well as some of the more quirky and hidden ones.
The 2019 edition will see 3,000 extra runners take part and just as it did in 2018, the event will engage the local community, as well as being a perfect day out for the family. Runners and spectators alike will be treated to activations and entertainment all around the route, plus the 180 charity cheer stations will ensure a buzzing atmosphere and will give runners an extra boost. This year’s fundraising target is £6 million for over 180 charities.
