Another successful trip down to London to cover the marathon. Definitely one of the highlights on my sporting calender - its a day when everyone has a smile on their face, people are super friendly and thousands of runners raise a fortune for the many charities represented. I was based on the Embankment at the 40km mark, so quite near the end of the course and where the participants need the most encouragement !
As usual the roads were packed out with spectators and supporters and it was pretty much a constant noise, from when we set up at 8pm until the last one went past around 6pm. So a long day but always great fun. A few highlights below. And if you want to read my tips for photographing marathons, follow the jump.
