Virgin London Marathon 2011Every April, 30,000 runners flood the streets of the capital to do battle with themselves and each other for the London Marathon. Serious competitors mingle with charity fun-runners in the spring sunshine as the 26.2 mile route comes alive to the sounds of bands, cheering crowds and pounding feet. The race is the biggest of all city marathons and attracts many of the world's top athletes. It kicks off at Greenwich Park and Blackheath, continues through Surrey Quays, Brunel Road, Tooley Street, Canary Wharf, the Tower Of London, Embankment , Parliament Square and Birdcage Walk, with a royal finish on The Mall by Buckingham Palace. Last year, Ethiopian athlete Tsegaye Kebede won the men's race, while Russia's Liliya Shobukhova deposed Germany's Irina Mikitenko as the winner of the women's race. For information about how you can run and raise money for charity go to www.virginlondonmarathon.com.

 

About The Mall

Running from Buckingham Palace to Admiralty Arch and Trafalgar Square, The Mall is a long red tarmac road which splits St James's Park on the south side from St James's Palace and Green Park on the north. Closed to traffic on Sundays and public holidays, the tree-lined Mall offers one of London's most memorable views of the Queen's official residence. More about The Mall
