The London Marathon was first run in 1981, 34 years ago and is the third largest running event in the UK. This event has raised over £450 million for charity since 1981. It was founded by former Olympic athlete and journalist Chris Brasher and athlete John Disley, after running the New York Marathon in 1979, they decided to put on a similar event, but better in the UK. A mini marathon is also run for children so the whole family can get involved. Approximately 30-40,000 people run the marathon each year. 92% of people will finish the marathon no matter what their fitness level, as getting to the start line of the marathon is an achievement in itself.
