On 24th April 2016, Londoners are rising to the challenge and running 42,195 kilometres in the Virgin Money London Marathon.
Considered one of the most prestigious marathons and one of the most popular in the world, the first Virgin Money London Marathon was run on 29th March 1981, thanks to Chris Brasher and John Disley, two Olympic champions who were inspired by the legendary New York marathon.
Since then nearly 30,000 tourists and keen sports men and women participate in this race through the heart of capital every year. The excellent organisation, the infectious enthusiasm and the palpable warmth of the ambiance are all unforgettable in the Virgin Money London Marathon.
