Wednesday 09 April 2014
The 34th London Marathon takes place this weekend. Starting in Greenwich, the 26.2 mile course takes in some of London's top tourist attractions and finishes at The Mall, in front of Buckingham Palace.
Those keen to take part in the race in 2015 can apply in three different ways:
This hasn't actually opened for next year's marathon yet but, when it does, potential participants will be able to apply for a place in the race by visiting www.virginmoneylondonmarathon.com/.
Through a charity
Different charities offer runners the chance to run the marathon, though participants often need to raise a certain amount of money to be eligible to compete. And just to be clear, you don't have to run dressed as a rhino.
Any runners that had to withdraw from this year's race due to injury or illness can apply to take part in 2015, as long as they do so by 5pm on June 20, 2014.
