The world-famous London Marathon route has remained largely unchanged since the inaugural race in 1981 and encompasses many of the capital’s most mesmerising landmarks, old and new.
You can enjoy a fly-through video, as well as an interactive map of the course, below, and if you’d like to learn about the history of the Virgin London Marathon, we have also provided a rundown of the key milestones along the route…
The Taunton route runs through the picturesque Longrun Meadow taking in views across Taunton. The route has a mixed terrain with gentle slopes but is mainly on gravel paths. There are lots of opportunities for supporters to cheer on their loved ones and the whole event has a fantastic atmosphere.
The Weston Super Half will set off from the entrance to the Grand Pier on Marine Parade. It will take in the glorious sites of Weston-super-Mare and the surrounding picturesque Somerset villages and countryside in this single lap, closed road, fast half marathon event. And the piece de resistance, a totally unique opportunity to finish a quarter of a mile out to sea on Westons Grand Pier.
