Since 1981, the annual London Marathon (Virgin London Marathon) is more than just a sporting event. This is one of the longest street parties in the world.
Initially, the marathon was held in April, but in 2020, due to the coronavirus pandemic, the London Marathon was postponed to October, and some events were cancelled. Since then, the marathon has been decided to be held in October.
The thunder of drums, street performances, gatherings in pubs and the screams of a merry crowd - all this accompanies the street passage of the marathon 26.2 miles (42.195 km) (42.195 km) by athletes.
