For many runners, especially marathon first-timers, the run up to the Virgin Money London Marathon can mean the start of sleepless nights worrying: What if I get injured? What should I wear? How far should I have run before the big day?
Every year in advance of Race Day, we invite runners to come and meet the marathon experts. This event, for both new and improving runners, is the ideal opportunity to discuss your race preparation with some of the foremost authorities in the world of distance running and get the best possible advice to help you prepare for the race.
