Use Journey Planner to plan your route by public transport.
Best Places to Watch the Runners:
- Greenwich Park:
The race starts here so it is very crowded.
- London Bridge Area:
This marks the half-way point.
- Tower Bridge:
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.
- The Mall:
Watch as tortured and exhausted faces turn to joy on crossing the finish line.
9.20am: The Wheelchair Race

All others participants are given a staggered start time shortly after.
