Venue: Greenwich Park and Blackheath



More than just a sporting event, the London Marathon is the world's longest street party. Roads along the route come alive with bands, cheering crowds, entertainers and 30,000 pairs of feet hitting the tarmac of the 26.2 mile course.Internationally, London is seen as the biggest and best of the big city marathons. The race kicks off at Greenwich Park and Blackheath, continues through Surrey Quays, Brunel Rd, Tooley St, Canary Wharf, the Tower of London, Embankment, Parliament Square and Birdcage Walk, then comes to a rousing finish on The Mall by Buckingham Palace.Many of the world's top athletes are attracted by the fast course and the high calibre of competition. However, the marathon is not just about the leading athletes - most of the 30,000 runners are there to have fun and to raise money for charity while doing so. It is this level of community spirit that makes the race so special. The pubs, schools and community groups who provide entertainment or assistance along the route all play their part in raising over £15 million for good causes. So put on your running shoes and get into training. However, if this seems like too much strain, at least get to the course, join in with the party and cheer on those made of sterner stuff!
