The London Marathon course is flat and fast, and is run around the River Thames. It starts in Blackheath (at 3 different points), heads east through Charlton and Woolwich for 5km (where the 3 courses converge), turns west and passes the Cutty Sark in Greenwich after 10-11km. It crosses the River Thames at Tower Bridge and loops around the east end of London, past Canary Wharf in Docklands, before heading west again along the Highway and the Embankment (catching a glimpse of the London Eye & the Big Ben) to Parliament Square, Birdcage Walk and the final corner in front of Buckingham Palace. The finish is in the Mall alongside St. James’ Palace.

The London Marathon is also known for being the ‘largest fundraising race’ in the world for the huge number of participants running for their chosen charities at the marathon.
