TCS London Marathon returns in April!
Put a spring in your step and challenge yourself to the iconic TCS London Marathon in support of Pilgrims Hospices.
In 2023, TCS London Marathon will return to its traditional slot in the running calendar on Sunday 23 April. Pilgrims Hospices are giving you the opportunity to experience this once in a lifetime atmosphere, whilst supporting local hospice care. Join #TeamPilgrims and be part of the biggest marathon in the world.
Beginning in Greenwich park, you’ll look over the beautiful city of London before it’s filled with like-minded runners taking on their own London Marathon. As you head for Westminster you’ll pass Charlton House, the Royal Artillery Barracks and the historic Cutty Sark. At 12.5 miles you’ll experience the famous Tower Bridge atmosphere, full of crowds cheering and applauding your efforts.
After running through Canary Wharf you’ll cross the Blackwall Basin with a glimpse of the 02 arena. As you emerge from the Blackwell Tunnel at mile 24 you’ll be celebrated by supporters as you complete your final miles. You’ll get famous views of the London Eye and Big Ben across the River Thames as you run along the Victoria Embankment. In the final miles you’ll run parallel to St James Park the crowds begin to grown as you round the Victoria Memorial onto the Mall as you set your sights on the memorable finish line.
