In April 2022, 11 runners from the garden retail sector tackled the unique London Landmark Half Marathon, together raising funds for the children’s hospice garden charity, Greenfingers. With the 2023 event now open for registration, the charity is pleased to confirm that it has once again secured 10 places.
Taking place on April 2nd 2023, there are currently just three places left to join one of the country’s most unique road races, with Team Woodlodge having already signed up to take part. Entry is free though the Greenfingers fundraising team asks for a minimum fundraising target of £500. Interested parties are invited to email Linda Petrons, Greenfingers Director of Fundraising & Communications via email@example.com to register their interest.
Linda Petrons said: “We are so pleased to have the London Landmarks Half Marathon back in our fundraising calendar for 2023. Last year’s event was truly inspiring and a race I know that our 11 fundraisers won’t forget in a hurry, so whether this is your first or last half marathon, know that you are set to have an incredible day. More than this, know that every penny raised will be hugely appreciated by all of us at Greenfingers, as well as the children, families and staff that spend time in a Greenfingers garden”
About the London Landmark Half Marathon
Launched in 2014, the London Landmark Half Marathon has been set up to shine a spotlight on not just London’s iconic landmarks, but also its quirky hidden gems. The route – which starts at Nelson’s Column before taking in such landmarks as London Eye, Big Ben, Downing Street, the world’s smallest police station, the largest grasshopper, Guy Fawkes house and so much more – travels through the heart of Westminster and London City, whilst celebrating the rich heritage and culture that shapes our nation’s capital.
To keep runners motivated, the route will also be adorned with musical performances, DJs, dancers and themed cheer stations, including a floral themed Greenfingers one! All roads will remain closed for the duration of the race.
This year runners from Evergreen Garden Care, British Garden Centres, AMES UK, and Capi Europe ran on behalf of Greenfingers, together raising over £11,000. Can you help beat that in 2023?
