Watch the Paralympic Marathon

Sure, our city will be just as good, and the year 2012 actually goes on for a few months yet, but the event which has billed itself for more than seven years as London 2012 basically ends today, with the Paralympic Closing Ceremony. Before then, there's another chance to witness sport on the streets and for free with the Paralympic Marathons.

There are actually four different marathons taking place today, with the men’s T12 and T46 events kicking off at 8am and the men’s and women’s T54 event beginning at 11.30am. It's an eight-mile looped course, starting and finishing on The Mall, and as far as your author can work out it's broadly the same as the Olympic one.
