Denise Poole and Claire Rodger finally took part in last Sundays London Landmarks Half Marathon. Due to the pandemic the event had been postponed and moved dates many times but last Sunday sore eleven thousand runners take park on a beautiful sunny day.
Following the global Covid-19 pandemic, the event was re-themed to celebrate, commemorate and reflect upon the landmark moments of 2020 and 2021. With many groups and displays reflecting lockdown life, key workers, unseen acts of kindness plus many more their was plenty to take you mind of the running.
The route starting in Trafalgar squire and finishing by Downing street in central London, taking in sites such as the Nelson Column, the tower of London, the London eye and many many more.
Their were bands and singing groups at what seemed like every corner meant Denise and Claire ran, skipped, laughed and danced their way around the route watch by many thousands of cheering crowds.
It was less about finishing times and more about enjoying a wonderful day supported by many volunteers and perhaps a sign we are getting back to a more normal life.
The whole event was also themed around the charity Tommy's who are the UK's leading pregnancy charity and exists to support every baby.
