The London Marathon – Tower Hill – 24 April 2016

First run on 29 March 1981, the 36th Marathon saw the 38000 elite, club and fun runners racing passed the iconic London locations such as the Tower of London, Tower Bridge and Buckingham Palace, before finishing in The Mall. Kipchoge won the men’s race and Sumgong the women’s . 2016 saw the one millionth competitor crossing the finish line, amongst the masses of public ballot runners – many in costume and a great number raising vast sums for charity. President Obama passed overhead at one point in ‘Marine One’ transiting from Windsor to Stansted Airport before departing for Germany in ‘Air Force One’.
