Virgin London Marathon 2013Every spring, around 30,000 runners flood the streets of the capital to take part in the London Marathon - one of the top five international marathons and the largest annual fund raising event in the world. Serious competitors mingle with charity fun-runners in the April sunshine as the 26.2 mile route comes alive to the sounds of bands, cheering crowds and pounding feet. The race kicks off at Greenwich Park and Blackheath with a loop around Charlton and Woolwich, continues through Rotherhithe and Bermondsey, crosses the Thames on Tower Bridge before circling Canary Wharf and the City ahead of the showpiece finish along the Embankment, past Parliament Square and onto The Mall in the shadow of Buckingham Palace. Last year it was Kenya who stole the show: Wilson Kipsang led a Kenyan one-two in the men's elite race while Mary Keitany recorded a second successive win in the women's race ahead of four fellow Kenyans.

 

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
