The IAAF London Marathon 2017

Fol­low­ing the great feat of the Vir­gin Lon­don Marathon, the IAAF Marathon high­lights the best run­ners in the world com­pet­ing for the fastest time.

Tak­ing place on the 6th August, this Marathon is a mean feat. This year’s event will be the 16th in the event’s 34-year his­to­ry, with the first being host­ed in Helsin­ki in 1983.

The most recent Cham­pi­onship was in Bei­jing in August 2015, which saw 1931 ath­letes par­tic­i­pat­ing from over 200 coun­tries.

With some of the fastest run­ners in the world cur­rent­ly being present in many of the ath­let­ics com­pe­ti­tions, this year’s spec­ta­cle is like­ly to be an amaz­ing per­for­mance of pas­sion, abil­i­ty, and sheer strength and sta­mi­na.

Along­side the Marathon run there will be the World Cham­pi­onships tak­ing place in the Queen Eliz­a­beth Olympic Park, and tick­ets are still avail­able to pur­chase for those inter­est­ed in attend­ing.
