Gabby Logan presents live coverage of the 39th London Marathon, one of the most prestigious, biggest and inspirational events on the sporting calendar. Over 40,000 people will run the 26.2 miles, and each and every one of them has a special reason for taking part.
At elite level, four-time Olympic gold medallist Sir Mo Farah is aiming to win the race for the first time, having claimed his maiden marathon victory in Chicago back in October. He faces a field headed by world record holder Eliud Kipchoge. The women’s race contains a world-class line-up containing the likes defending champion Vivian Cheruiyot, three-time winner Mary Keitany and three-time Olympic gold medallist Tirunesh Dibaba.
Reporting along the 26.2 mile route will be Radzi Chinyanganya, Jeanette Kwakye, Steve Brown and JJ Chalmers, while commentary comes from Steve Cram, Andrew Cotter, six-time London Marathon wheelchair race winner Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson and Paula Radcliffe – who herself set the women’s marathon world record 16 years ago in London.
