Off to a running start in the Spring of 1981, the inaugural London Marathon saw over 6,000 jogging marathoners cross the finish line as cheering crowds lined the route.
Since then, the London Marathon has continued to grow in size and popularity
and today averages 46,500 applicants annually.
This year, the capital city event is scheduled to kick off on Sunday, April 23, 2017 at 9:45 AM local time.
The London Marathon also doubles as a charity event, with hopes of raising
millions of pounds in the biggest one-day fundraiser in the UK. So also watch for an A-list of celebrities to run on London Marathon Sunday to further help the cause.
Meanwhile, join millions of marathon fans - in London and around the world - to wish all the runners the best of luck!
