What route will the 2023 London Marathon take?
The London Marathon course, which goes by many of the city’s landmarks, hasn’t changed much since it was first established in 1981.
Participants will start in Greenwich, close to the Meridian Line, which serves as the neutral location for setting all time zones throughout the world.
The Cutty Sark and the Shard are the next landmarks that runners will pass before Tower Bridge as they approach the halfway point of the course.
They will then make their way to Westminster along Victoria Embankment, passing the London Eye, before turning towards Canary Wharf.
The participants will turn onto The Mall and proceed in the direction of the finish line, which is situated just yards from Buckingham Palace, as the event comes to a close. They will run past Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament.
There is a total of $313,000 up for grabs, with the men’s and women’s winners getting $55,000 each and cash prizes also there for the top 10 finishers.
