What is the 2021 London Marathon route?

The London Marathon route is iconic – running from Blackheath in London’s south-east to the finish line at The Mall.

Runners will make their way through Greenwich before passing over the Thames at the Tower Bridge.

The route continues through Central London and passes Canary Wharf, plus famous landmarks such as the London Eye and Big Ben – where thousands of avid spectators will cheer on the runners.

As the racegoers turn the bend at Buckingham Palace, all they’ll have left is the stretch of The Mall to reach the finish line.
