With the first Virgin London Marathon taking place this Sunday and all the runners heading over to the Expo to pick up their race numbers, we thought we’d let you know where you can find us around the course on race day.
Partnering up with our friends at Virgin Money well be out and about giving away everything you need to make lots of noise and show your support for the runners.
You’ll find us at 3 main areas around the course as well as at all the starts and the finish line.
Mile 10 – by Tower Bridge
Mile 18 – Montgomery Square in Canary Wharf
Mile 25 – Tower Hill
Virgin Angels will be roaming around giving away giant inflatable hands, bang sticks, trumpet horns, and balloons. Virgin Money Giving will also be there giving out our cheering boards too.
If you’d like to get some cheering boards early so you can customise them with a personal message, we’re also giving them away at the Expo.
To help you find your way around the marathon route, take a look at the new Virgin London Marathon Interactive Map. Each of the mile markers has information for spectators, and if you know the pace the person you’re supporting runs at, it can help you work out roughly where they’ll be when.
On the day you can track each runner from the comfort of your armchair using the adidas Marathon Tracker Facebook application, and if you’re out and about in London you can use your mobile phone to access it too.
