The London Marathon is an annual 26.2 mile (42.1Km) marathon in London, United Kingdom, held on the last Sunday in April.
With 40,000 expected runners, from over 65 countries the race is the right size to give you that big race atmosphere.
London weather is usually ideal for marathon running, with average temperatues of between 12 and 14 degrees Celsius.
On the day of the Marathon, road diversions and public transport disturbance is common, so to avoid unforeseen situations, we recommend planning your route in advance.
Running/ Walking Groups in London
London is a culture-loving, vibrant capital where you’ll find plenty of places to stretch your legs. For more information, visit Get Active.
Before you get started, here are three of our favourite spots to power through on foot.
Regent’s Park and Primrose Hill: Regent’s Park has one of the most pleasant inner-city runs in London, with running tracks covering about five kilometres of parkland. You can also add on a loop of nearby Primrose Hill for a more intense workout. The latter can be very steep, but the views of the city from the top are spectacular.
Thames Run: This is a simple route that takes in the River Thames and plenty of London’s incredible landmarks along the way, including Tate Britain, the Houses of Parliament and Somerset House. Starting from Battersea Power Station, cross onto the north side of the river and follow it until you get to the Tower of London. Head across Tower Bridge and come back on the south side of the river. You can end back in Battersea Park, or venture a little futher into leafy Putney if you want to make your run slightly longer.
Diana Memorial: This is a figure-of-eight course that takes in many of central London’s green spaces, including Kensington Gardens, Hyde Park, Green Park and St James Park. You’ll be running between Buckingham Palace and Kensington Palace, and then back again – a route fit for royalty.
