TCS London Marathon 2024

The London Marathon (also known as the TCS London Marathon for sponsorship reasons) is an annual marathon held in London, England. It is the second-largest annual road race in the UK, after the Great North Run in Newcastle, and has become one of the most popular marathons in the world. Founded by athletes Chris Brasher and John Disley in 1981, it is typically held in April, although it moved to October for 2020, 2021, and 2022 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The largely flat course is set around the River Thames, starting in Blackheath and finishing at The Mall. Hugh Brasher (son of Chris) is the current race director and Nick Bitel is its chief executive. The route takes in many of London’s best landmarks including Buckingham Palace, The Cutty Sark, Tower Bridge, and Canary Wharf.

The TCS Mini London Marathon, an event for schools and children takes place the day before, and covers two distances, finishing on The Mall. TCS London Marathon MyWay lets you take part from wherever in the world you are.

The TCS London Marathon takes place each year in April.
