The London Marathon is one of the largest mass-participation events in the world with thousands of people, including world class athletes, celebrities and eager runners, raising millions of pounds for charities.
Road closures in support of the event will be in place and there are essential planned closures on the Central line and London Overground. As the Docklands Light Railway serves the starting point of the Marathon, there will be changes to services in place to better support the event. Transport for London (TfL) is encouraging everyone to plan their journeys in advance and check the TfL website or TfL Go app for the latest travel information.
The route will take runners past some of London's most famous and historic landmarks. All visitors are advised to plan their day carefully and to avoid busy areas, in particular Greenwich Town Centre, Cutty Sark and Tower Bridge.
