The London Marathon traditionally heralds the change in weather as much as the spring flowers and bird song and this year is no exception. On Sunday 24th April 38,000 runners will descend on South London for the start of the race. Starting in the Royal Park at Greenwich they will weave through Blackheath, Woolwich and Greenwich before heading off in to London’s City areas.
