London Marathon 2020

London Marathon is the ultimate marathon in the international circuit cheered on by huge crowds.

Britain’s favourite race again took mass-participation running to a new level, with a record 42,906 starters and no less than 42,549 finishing on The Mall in 2019, eclipsing 2018’s record total of 40,273 by more than 2,000.

At the end of an incredible day in 2019, event director Hugh Brasher summed it all up, saying: “Londoners came out in huge numbers to cheer on the runners and I would like to say Thanks A Billion to every runner and supporter who celebrated the 2019 Virgin Money London Marathon with us today. If you are inspired to run in our 40th race next year, the ballot is now open.”
