LONDON will be preparing for another memorable marathon in 2018 and here is everything you need to know ahead of the prestigious race.
The capital of England will welcome runners in all shapes and sizes, as newcomers, casual runners and full-time professionals all take part.

How can I apply?
Most people apply via the London Marathon ballot and they usually release a list of the successful applicants in October.
You can also get in on the act by running for a charity, but there are only limited places and to secure a place you must approach the charity to see if they have space.
People can also qualify through the ‘Good For Age Entry’ where you must have run a full marathon in the same time or quicker than the times for certain age brackets.
With the 2017 London Marathon yet to take place, people must wait for the ballot open for next year’s race.
