The London Classics
London Marathon Events have brought together the best marathon in the world, the world’s greatest cycling festival and the inspirational open water swimming event, Swim Serpentine, to create the London Classics, one of the world’s great sporting challenges.
The unique challenge requires participants to run the Virgin Money London Marathon, cycle 100 miles in the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 and swim two miles at Swim Serpentine, the open water swimming festival.
Everyone who completes this iconic trio of events receives a specially-designed London Classics medal engraved with the words: Et ego Londinium vici (“I too have conquered London”) and will be listed in the London Classics Hall of Fame.
