26.2 miles awaits runner Will

On Sunday April 28, 2019 our Will Lawrence will line up in Greenwich Park for the start of the 38th London Marathon.

The event was first run on March 29, 1981 with over 20,000 applicants and only 6,747 accepted.  In 2018, over 200,000 applied and 40,000 runners started the race!

This year Will is part of a field that also includes Sir Mo Farah, who is bidding to win his first London Marathon. Standing in his way is World Marathon Record Holder Eliud Kipchoge!  That could be some race with conditions looking to be hovering around 15C

Sir Andy Murray will be getting the runners under way – so from all of us Good Luck Will and enjoy the race.
