3 Top tips from Liz Yelling and a Marathon weather update

With the London Marathon Weather forcast changing every day its important that you’ve thought about your race day strategy. The latest weather report suggests a showery start – and you can keep up to date with the weather from the Met Office.

Yesterday we caught up with Liz Yelling who gave us three top tips for racing on Sunday:

  1. Wrap up nice and warm at the start – a bin bag will help to keep you dry and warm.
  2. Don’t go off too fast.
  3. Keep to your pace. If you were slower than you’d planned over the first few miles, don’t try to speed up to make up the time in the next few miles.

We’ll be posting our race day checklist later on today, so make sure you check back in – and let us know if you have any tips about combating the weather.

While we’re talking about weather, her’s a great infographic from The Met Office have also put together a great inforgraphic about London Marathon weather over the last 30 years.
