April 22, 2018 -- Der 38. London Marathon startet in Blackheath in Greenwich und endet auf The Mall. Königin Elizabeth II ist der offizielle Starter für 2018, sie besteigt ein spezielles Podest vor dem Runden Turm in Windsor Castle und drückt dann den Startknopf um exakt 10:00 Uhr. Die Live Übertragung dieser Zeremonie erfolgt auf riesige Bildschirmen in Blackheath, rund 40.000 Läufer machen sich auf den Weg.

Two of the greatest marathon fields in history will contest the elite men’s and women’s races at the London Marathon when last year’s champions Daniel Wanjiru and Mary Keitany return to defend their titles.

In addition to Wanjiru (Kenya), the men’s race will feature the three greatest distance runners of their generation. Eliud Kipchoge (Kenya), Kenenisa Bekele (Ethiopia) and Mo Farah (Britain) have a combined total of eight Olympic gold medals and 12 World Championship golds between them.

Kenya’s Keitany will again go head-to-head with Ethiopia’s Tirunesh Dibaba, the 2017 runner-up in London who went on to win the Chicago Marathon in October.
