Virgin London Marathon 2012Every 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 it was the Kenyan athletes that shone, with Emmanuel Mutai winning the men's race and Mary Keitany coming in first in the women's. For information about how you can run and raise money for charity go to www.virginlondonmarathon.com.

As you walk across the spectacular Greenwich Park you get a potent sense of both. More about Greenwich Park
