Everybody Is Ready for the London Marathon

Everybody Is Ready for the London Marathon
#Lifestyle

Last year, giving her “blessing” to one of the most famous and spectacular marathons in the world, live on television, from a special podium set up in front of the Round Tower of the Castle of Windsor, was Queen Elizabeth herself. This year, the London Marathon falls on 28 April and while you can no longer sign up to run, since the “public ballot entry system” for 2019 has been closed for some time, you can certainly watch the athletes cover the more than 40 kilometres that run from Greenwich to Buckingham Palace, in front of the city’s most well-known monuments, such as the Tower Bridge, the Tower of London, the Parliament, Big Ben and the London Eye. There are three points of departure - Greenwich Park, St. John’s Park and Shooter’s Hill Road. And it matters little that the closure of several bridges may cause some difficulties for traffic. The marathon, besides being an institution for the city, has always been a grand celebration for all.
