Starting on Piccadilly outside The Cavalry & Guards Club on Hyde Park corner, runners will make their way past huge crowds and London landmarks including the London Eye, Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament.
The iconic route will see runners head along Piccadilly towards Piccadilly Circus, taking in Regent Street, Pall Mall and St James Palace. It’s then a right turn towards Trafalgar Square, before taking a left into Charing Cross Road. The route then drops down to the Embankment, before turning left towards the City. Following the Embankment, runners will take a left into Temple Place, where they’ll follow the length of Temple Place before making a wide turn back onto the Embankment westbound, soaking up the atmosphere for almost 2km before turning left onto Westminster Bridge.
Here runners will u-turn in front of the South Bank Lion Statue and towards the spectacular backdrop of Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament, take a loop of Parliament Square and then head towards the finish straight ready to cross the finish line on Whitehall.
