Every year, approximately 36,000 people run the 26.2-mile (42.2km) marathon through the streets of London. With its cheering crowds and fancy dress fundraisers, the London Marathon is our very own world-famous running race.
The route starts south of the Thames and passes through Greenwich before crossing the river over Tower Bridge. It then continues through central London before finishing in glory in front of Buckingham Palace.
This year’s marathon takes place on Sunday April 24 2016. Whether you run, walk or cheer from the sidelines, this is a London sporting institution.
