The TCS London Marathon 2024 will bring more than 50,000 athletes of all ages and skill levels to England’s capital city on April 21.

The race, which first was held in 1981, will take the competitors on a 26.2-mile journey across London, a route that hasn’t changed much since the inaugural edition. They’ll pass many famous landmarks, including Tower Bridge, Canary Wharf, London Eye, Big Ben and Buckingham Palace, home of the United Kingdom’s constitutional monarchy.

The London Marathon includes elite runners chasing world records, wheelchair racers and competitors who run in costume and race to raise money for charity. There’s even a mini-marathon for competitors under 17 years old.

The 2024 TCS London Marathon will be held on Sunday, April 21 in London, England. Below you will find information on how to watch the race around the world.

This year the women’s elite race looks particularly unmissable, with 10 athletes who have run sub 2hr 20min in the field including world record holder Tigist Assefa. Two-time London Marathon winner Brigid Kosgei and Olympic champion Peres Jepchirchir are other notable names, as is Yalemzerf Yehualaw, who won the London Marathon in 2022.

On the men’s side the biggest name is Kenenisa Bekele, who is competing in his seventh London Marathon and aiming to win it for the first time, although at 41 he is perhaps more likely to set a masters record than win overall. The fastest men in the field based on recent results are Mosinet Geremew, Alexander Mutiso Munyao and Tamirat Tola, and last year’s runner-up Geoffrey Kamworor will also have eyes on the win.

The top Brits in the field include Becky Briggs, Alice Wright and Anya Culling in the women’s race, and Emile Cairess, Marc Scott and Callum Hawkins in the men’s. Cairess and Hawkins are both in the top five for fastest marathons by British runners ever, while Marc Scott is a debutant at the distance with impressive pedigree from shorter road and track events.

How to watch in the USA: FloTrack will be streaming the race live. The elite women’s race begins at 4:25 a.m. ET on Sunday with the men starting at 5:00 a.m. ET.

How to watch in the UK: BBC One will have live coverage from 08:30-14:00 on Sunday with an extra hour of coverage on BBC Two from 14:00 to 15:00.

The London Marathon, also referred to as the TCS London Marathon due to sponsorship, is a yearly marathon hosted in London, England. It stands as the second-largest annual road race in the United Kingdom, following the Great North Run in Newcastle.

The official cut-off time for the London Marathon 2024 is eight hours. A specially recruited group of 50 ‘Tailwalkers’ will move along the entire London Marathon route at an eight-hour pace, starting at the back of the final wave on all four starts: Blue, Green, Red and Yellow.

This year’s event is set to be an emotional occasion as tributes are paid to Kelvin Kiptum, the marathon world-record holder and last year’s winner who tragically died in a car accident in Kenya back in February.

Over £66million is set to be raised for charity in 2024, while race organisers are hoping that the marathon’s “force for good” nature will deter any potential protests along the famous 26.2-mile route that takes in many of the city’s most well-known landmarks.

It’s expected to be dry and intermittently sunny weather in London on race day, with only a slight chance of rain.

If you’re unable to maintain this pace, a Tailwalker will drop back, move with you onto the pavement and support and guide you through to the Finish Line at whatever pace you’re able to maintain.

There’s special focus on the women’s race this year, with Tigst Assefa is widely expected to both win this year’s event set and in turn set a new world record.

The men’s race is meanwhile likely to be a bittersweet affair, with 2023 men’s champion Kelvin Kiptum having tragically died earlier this year following a car crash in his native Kenya.

Below, we’ll outline the best live TV streaming services to use to watch every match of the 2024 London Marathon, no matter where you are in the world.

The London Marathon is renowned for its rapid course, boasting records set by some of the greatest runners in history. Eliud Kipchoge’s 2019 course record of 2:02:37, Mary Keitany’s 2017 women’s course record of 2:17:01, and Paula Radcliffe’s mixed marathon world record from 2003 (2:15:25) remain unbroken.

Since its inception, world records have been shattered six times at the London Marathon.
