Virgin Money London Marathon

The London Marathon is the world's greatest big city marathon. Since it was founded in 1981 by Chris Brasher and John Disley the course has changed very little.

The final few miles see runners head back towards Westminster, along the Embankment, for a spectacular finish on The Mall.
