Charity places in the 2017 London Marathon

Sunday 23 April 2017

This year over 35,000 people ran the 26.2 mile London Marathon course through the centre of London. Many were running for charity and raising millions of pounds for good causes.

Running any marathon is a huge personal achievement. London's is a particularly amazing experience, with supporters cheering you on every inch of the way.


I’ve never done anything so hard in my life and I'm still in awe of the incredible crowd support. And it was simply brilliant to see all you guys cheering us on, even if I was delirious by that point! Thanks for all the help.
