April 28, 2019 -- Over 35,000 elite, club, and fun runners are expected to participate in the 39th London Marathon, which starts from Blackheath in Greenwich and finishes on the Mall in front of Buckingham Palace.

The London Marathon will once again feature some of the greatest long distance runners in history, with elite fields for both the men’s and women’s races promising to be highly competitive.

The men’s field is headed by reigning champion Eliud Kipchoge of Kenya, who is aiming to win his fourth London title in five years. He set a new world record time for the men’s marathon in Berlin last year -- sparking debate on when the two-hour barrier will be officially broken. Shura Kitata (Ethiopia) and Mo Farah (Great Britain), who both finished on the podium in 2018, also compete again this year.

In the women’s field Kenya’s Mary Keitany is also aiming to win the London Marathon for a fourth time, matching the feat she achieved in New York City in 2018. She will face tough opposition from 2018 winner Vivian Cheruiyot (Kenya), and debutante Birhane Dibaba (Ethopoa), who won the Tokyo Marathon in February.

The London Marathon is the third of the six World Marathon Majors of 2019. The full list is:
Mar 3 Tokyo, Japan
Apr 15 Boston, U.S.
Apr 28 London, UK
Sep 29 Berlin, Germany
Oct 13 Chicago, U.S.
Nov 3 New York, U.S.


NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.


Over the coming weeks I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @ graphicnews.com
