London Landmarks Half Marathon
Runners and spectators will discover London’s hidden secrets, and mile markers will reveal quirky facts, from London’s biggest grasshopper to where the bowler hat was created.
When you cross the finish line you’ll achieve more than just your goal, you’ll be helping us to reach ours too: clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene for everyone, everywhere by 2030. So what are you waiting for? Join team WaterAid today!

As a member of our team you’ll receive:
- A personalised WaterAid running vest or technical t-shirt
- Expert training support and advice, including an invite to our training day

That's not all. We'll also hook you up with:
- Fundraising and event resources like balloons, collecting tins and banners
- Regular newsletters and emails to keep you updated

To join Team WaterAid you can either pop us an email at [email protected] to let us know you’d like to join our team, or you can set up an online fundraising page on JustGiving or Virgin Money Giving. They'll tell us you’re fundraising for WaterAid and we’ll get in touch to say thank you and send you a fundraising pack.
If you’ve registered for a charity place or got your own place in any of our events, you'll receive your very own WaterAid running vest a few weeks before the race.
If you're taking on a different event for WaterAid and would like us to send you a vest or jersey, please contact us at [email protected].
We've teamed up with leading sport and training coaches RunningwithUs to provide expert training plans, tips and advice.
We have bespoke training plans, put together by RunningwithUs, and you'll get direct access to the expertise of our professional coaches. Whether you’re brand new to running or a seasoned cyclist, we have a training plan to help you. If you have any specific training questions, you can contact RunningwithUs directly by emailing [email protected].
If you get a place on the WaterAid team we ask that you commit to raising £350. It might sound like a lot, but we'll be on hand with loads of tips and support to help you reach it - you'll get there in no time!
If you have your own place and decide to run for WaterAid, there's no minimum sponsorship amount.
