The London Marathon is a truly spectacular event and the biggest annual fundraiser in the world, raising more than £1 billion for good causes since it began in 1981. Running a marathon is an incredible challenge, but there is nothing quite like the thrill of running the closed streets of London, lined with thousands of spectators screaming your name.
