The London Marathon

The London Marathon is one of the iconic marathon runs in the world. First run in 1981, it is now one of the World Marathon Majors. It is traditionally held in April. 

Some 48,000 people take on the 26-mile course in various guises, making it one of the largest mass runs in the UK behind the Great North Run.

London Marathon Course

The marathon is in the heart of the UK capital, criss-crossing its way across the Thames before coming to a conclusion along the Mall by Buckingham Palace. It is a relatively flat course.
