Towards the end of 2019, Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust  and London Marathon Events  launched a competition for Part 2 architecture students and recent Part 2 graduates from UK universities to design a new mile-marker structure for every one of the 26 miles on the iconic Virgin Money London Marathon course.

Alice, Anastasis, Gareth and Shalini submitted an entry named “The Break-Through” which has been shortlisted to the final stages of the competition, with the team attending an exciting factory visit to Arena Group, which produces the marathon mile marker structures.

An exhibition of their work and all other entries will open at the Stephen Lawrence Trust Centre on Friday the 13th February, do come along to check all the shortlisted entries. You can get tickets here:

Well done team!
