Event Info


On Sunday 24 April 2016, history was made as the one millionth London Marathon finisher crossed the world famous Finish Line on The Mall.

To mark this great milestone, we created the #oneinamillion campaign to celebrate every runner who has completed the 26.2-mile challenge since the first race took place back in 1981. Every runner who has finished the race in the 36 years since it began is invited to share their marathon memories on Twitter @LondonMarathon using the hashtag #oneinamillion

#oneinamillion finisher number

Every one of the first million finishers of the event, from 1981 to 2016, can search our historic results database to find their unique #oneinamillion finisher number.

Please note: The opportunity to purchase a t-shirt with your finisher number ran from February 2016 until June 2017 and is no longer available.
