Watch the Marathon

As your author wandered through Blackheath village and across the heath yesterday, the participant pens were all laid out and the local pubs were already advertising bacon sandwiches for the next morning for runners and their loyal supporters, for today is marathon day in London.

The course covers the usual 26-miles-and-385 yards, and the best place for supporters to cheer usually seems to be around the Tower of London, where runners pass by at the around 13 and 23 miles stages, and charities, supporters and TV correspondents line up their to support participants.
