April 22, 2018 -- De 38e London Marathon start vanaf Blackheath in Greenwich en finisht in The Mall. Koningin Elizabeth II is de officiële starter van de race van 2018. Zij stapt daartoe op een speciaal podium voor de Ronde Toren in Windsor Castle om de startknop om 10.00 's ochtends in te drukken. Live-verslag van de startceremonie wordt op grote schermen in Blackheath getoond om 40.000 lopers op weg te sturen.

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.
