Strava followed the race by bike, stopping in the best spots to watch the race, soak up the sun (a rare treat for Londoners) and enjoy seeing London in its best light, with runners rather than traffic clogging up the roads.
Every mile tells a story.
Of hope, endurance, passion and desire.
Stories of muscles wanting to quit.
Minds refusing to head.
Stories of bravery.
Stories of triumph.
Pain and pleasure.
Proving your efforts.
Proving your commitments.
Proves you are crazy.
Proves to others and yourself.
That you are out here doing exactly what you love to do.

Training for races is one of the primary characteristics of being a runner. To train more effectively for your next event, we’ve improved the way training information is surfaced with our recent update to Premium Pace Zones.
