TAKE a run, take in some of Britain’s most popular sights…and support top South Yorkshire dementia charity Lost Chord.
The 2019 London Landmarks Half Marathon will take place on Sunday, March 24, a hugely popular sporting challenge that takes in some of the capital’s most loved locations as it makes its way from Pall Mall to Downing Street.
Along the route there are fabulous views of London’s most iconic landmarks, including Big Ben, St Paul’s Cathedral, Nelson’s Column, the Gherkin, the Shard, the Tower of London and the London Eye.
And dementia charity Lost Chord is hoping that South Yorkshire runners will head south to support the event - and help raise vital funds for the work of the organisation, which brings interactive musical experiences to people living with dementia in care homes and day centres across the region and nationally.
“The London Landmarks Half Marathon proved enormously popular when it made its debut this year and next year’s event already looks like it is going to be an even bigger success,” said Lost Chord Chief Executive Helena Muller.
“We are particularly excited about next year’s landmark Half Marathon because March 2019 is our 20th Anniversary and it would be great to get 20 runners supporting Lost Chord, wearing our colours and logo!
“And every step they take on this great sporting challenge really will make an enormous difference to the lives of people living with dementia as the money raised will help us to guarantee even more of our concerts by professional musicians.”
