London Marathon: 2019 Live Just weeks after one of the most exciting Boston Marathon finishes in history, runners across the Atlantic were preparing to run the London Marathon.The marathon has raised £1bn since it started in 1981, according to race sponsors Virgin Money.The race has been scheduled for the morning of Sunday April 28.

More than 40,000 runners have descended on the capital for the race. The women’s elite race is due to start at 09:25 BST and the men’s at 10:10.

The marathon has raised £1bn since it started in 1981, according to race sponsors Virgin Money.

Runners are targeting more than 80 Guinness World Records – including Sir Mo Farah, aiming to break his own British record.

Event director Hugh Brasher said: “No other mass participation event comes anywhere near this kind of fundraising.

Men’s world record holder Eliud Kipchoge and home favourite Sir Mo headline a strong field for the elite men’s race.

Kipchoge, the Olympic champion who holds the course record, is looking for a fourth win in the race in five years. He has not been beaten over 26.2 miles since the 2013 Berlin Marathon.

Eight-time winner David Weir will compete in the wheelchair race for the 20th consecutive year.

Hundreds of thousands of people are expected on the streets of London, meaning finding the right spot to watch the action from can potentially be quite hard.

But fear not, we have charged around the roadsides in years gone by and worked out the best places to catch the action from.
