Watch the London Marathon

Of all the charity running events in London, the Marathon is the most rewarding as a spectator, with swathes of the capital closed to traffic, and more than 34,500 participants in 2013. Your author has no intention of ever experiencing it as a runner, but those that do each year seem to find it a rewarding experience, and plenty of money is raised as a result for good causes.

This year's event kicks off with staggered starts on Blackheath around 10am, and the most popular spots for spectators are usually around the Tower of London, where the race passes twice at roughly  mile 12 and mile 23, and at the finish line on the Mall, but public transport usually allows watching at a few different points for keen watchers.
