We'd like a say a BIG thank you to all our hardworking volunteers who helped make Race Day special for everyone taking part. We couldn't do it without your help!
Speaking about the work done by our volunteer crew, Seb Coe said: “As somebody who has helped put an event on I know you just cannot do it without volunteers.
"The difference between a good and a great event is the volunteers. They’re the first people you see when you get to the course. There is not a single sports event you could stage without volunteers and the London Marathon set the scene. We talk about the games-makers at London 2012, but the London Marathon had actually tapped into that environment 30 years earlier." https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10153008319069748.1073741894.71506449747&type=1

The London Marathon - the biggest annual fundraising event on the planet
Introduction
The London Marathon was first held in March 29th 1981. Since this time the event has continued to grow in size, stature and popularity with more than 35,000 runners each year. In all, a total of 746,635 have completed the race since its inception with 36,550 runners crossing the line in 2010.

The course starts in the beautiful Greenwich Park and takes you past London’s famous sights including the Cutty Sark, Canary Wharf, Tower of London, Nelson’s Column, and the Millennium Wheel before finishing in front of Buckingham Palace.

As a fundraising event, there is no marathon in the world that comes close to the Virgin London Marathon. One of the dominant images of the race is that of thousands clad in fancy dress, tramping the cobbles in support of charitable causes dressed as rhinos, football team mascots, giant trees and the like. The runners have raised over £557.8 million for good causes since the first race in 1981.

The 2015 event will take place on Sunday 26 April.
