Karen Richardson describes running the London Landmarks Half Marathon for Haemochromatosis UK in 2023 as "life-changing in so many ways." (Update - all current places for LLHM are allocated)

Before signing up to raise funds for Haemochromatosis UK and taking her place on the 2023 London Landmarks Half Marathon - Karen wouldn't have described herself as a runner - but now she does. 

Karen was one of the five people who ran for the charity and raised over £1,000 herself in the fight against iron overload. Karen also describes how it helped her own personal fight, as she was able to skip a couple of venesections as she was doing high intensity workouts.

"The atmosphere and support on the day is unforgettable. The sense of achievement enormous." says Karen describing the positivity of the day.

The charity is encouraging people to sign-up now for the limited places available in the 2024 London Landmarks Half Marathon on Sunday 7th April 2024. Contact us directly to register your place! (Update - all current places for LLHM are allocated - but we have asked for more - with no guarantee will we get them unfortunately)

The 2023 event was the BIGGEST yet, with the streets of London becoming awash with colour as over 17,000 runners, and for the first-time wheelchair participants, took to the capital raising money for causes close to their hearts. 

You can be part of it all in 2024 and join the incredible atmosphere along the 13.1-mile course which takes in London’s most iconic landmarks including St Paul’s Cathedral , Big Ben and The London Eye. Organisers describe the event as a 'truly heart-warming half marathon knowing you are making a difference to people’s lives'. 

The challenge is to raise at least £1,000 - and in so doing become a fundraising hero for Haemochromatosis UK (more on that in coming news). Contact Philanthropy Manager, Neil Irwin to put your name forward: [email protected]
