London Marathon General Information:
The London Marathon attracts top athletes and amateur runners as they all try to complete the grueling 26.2 mile course.
Over 45,000 runners take part and half a million spectators line the route as the runners pass some of the capital's most iconic landmarks.
When: 13 April 2014. (Annual April event in London.)
Best Places to Watch the Runners:
The race starts here so it is very crowded.
London Bridge Area:
This marks the half-way point.
A great photo opportunity to see the runners crossing the famous Tower Bridge, but again, very crowded.
As the competitors head up the Embankment, opposite the London Eye, past the Houses of Parliament, to Nelson's Column they face the final grueling mile.
Watch as tortured and exhausted faces turn to joy on crossing the finish line.
