    And there you have it – that's a wrap on our coverage of the 2019 Virgin Money London Marathon.

     

    We've had a new course record run by Eliud Kipchoge in the elite men's race, the youngest ever winner of the elite women's race, and a record number of finishers.

     

    We're already looking forward to next year's race – remember, the ballot for the 2020 race is open now. Why not give it a try?
