London Marathon breaks new ground over prize money

April 21, 2024 - The 2024 London Marathon will create history by becoming the first marathon in the world to ensure equal distribution of prize money for its wheelchair and able-bodied races.

London Marathon wheelchair races were already the richest in the world, but a further increase of $54,500 to the prize money in 2024 means the total prize pot stands at $308,000, creating parity with the elite men’s and women’s able-bodied fields.

This means that all winners in the elite races of the 2024 London Marathon will receive $55,000, with the runner-up earning $30,000 and third-place $22,500, according to event organisers.
