One place left for Greenfingers

Company: Greenfingers

With the London Landmarks Half Marathon fast approaching (April 3rd), don’t be surprised to see several members of the garden retail sector getting their practice in, as 11 people have already signed up to fundraising for the Greenfingers charity at this most unusual road race. But don’t worry if you think you’ve missed out as there is still one place to be filled!

So far runners from Evergreen Garden Care, British Garden Centres, Capi Europe and AMES UK have secured a place at the event, all ready to take on the 13-mile route whilst helping to raise much needed funds for Greenfingers. All monies raised by the racers will allow the charity to create even more therapeutic garden spaces at children’s hospices across the country. With just one more place to fill, the race is on to see who will join the line-up.

Entry to the London Landmarks Half Marathon is free though the Greenfingers fundraising team ask that a minimum fundraising target of £500 is set. Anyone interested in securing the last spot on the team is invited to email Linda Petrons, Greenfingers Director of Fundraising & Communications via

About the London Landmarks Half Marathon

Launched in 2014, the London Landmarks 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.
