London Olympics: The MallEvents: Athletics (Marathon and Race Walk), Road Cycling (Road Race), Paralympic Athletics (Marathon)

The elegant runway of Buckingham Palace is no stranger to big events, hosting the finale of the annual London Marathon every April, not to mention a steady flow of Royal bonanzas such as the recent wedding of Prince William and Catherine Middleton. In London 2012, just 36 days after the celebrations to mark the Queen's Diamond Jubilee and birthday, The Mall will be equipped with temporary seating, scoreboards, video boards, tents, cabins, generators and whatnot, in time for the first event of its busy Olympic schedule: the men's Cycling Road Race, which will take place on Saturday 28 July one day before the women's race. Both events will begin on The Mall before riders head south-west through the city and across Putney Bridge as they make their way through Richmond Park and past Hampton Court Palace towards Surrey, where they will face a challenging loop around Box Hill (nine for the men and two for the women) before heading back to The Mall for a dramatic finish in the shadow of the Queen's official residence. Later in the Games, the five road events on the Athletics programme - the men's and women's Marathons (12 and 5 August), the men's and women's 20km Race Walks (4 and 11 August), and the men's 50km Race Walk (11 August) will all take place on the streets of Central London before finishing on The Mall. Then a month later, on 9 September, The Mall will host the finale of the men's and women's Paralympic Marathons. All these events are free to watch, but spectators can apply for tickets to some viewing areas.
