Today was the London Marathon. Almost 36,000 people took part from the world's greatest marathon runners to ones who seemed to be struggling from the word go. It is a great spectacle to watch. A few years ago I ran it myself. It was an amazing achievement and the incredible crowd really help to get you round. Now I have done it I feel happy to stand back and watch the runners go by.
These photos were taken at the 8 mile point. These runners have been running for about 45mins so are doing really well.
|As time goes on we see more and more of the fun runners who raise an amazing amount for their chosen charities.|
|Even rhinos run the marathon!|
