How do I collect my Event Pack?

add remove

Your event pack contains your all-important bib number, which you must wear on Marathon Day. You'll need to collect your pack from the TCS London Marathon Running Show, which takes place in London over the four days before the marathon. If you can't attend the TCS London Marathon Running Show, someone can collect your pack on your behalf, see the London Marathon Event Guide, which you should receive in the post, for details of this. Event Packs will not be posted and cannot be collected on Marathon Day, so please ensure you allow time to arrange collection

Will my finishing time be published online?

add remove

Yes - your bib number will contain a timing chip, so the finishing times of all participants will be published on the TCS London Marathon website within 24 hours of the event. You'll then be able to look up your official time on the site using your bib number

Can I change my start time so I can run with a friend?

add remove

London Marathon cannot accommodate individual requests to change start times. If your friend is in the same starting area as you, you may move back to join them without notifying the event organisers, you cannot move forward to join a friend - they would need to move back to join you
