7 marathons around the world to take part in

Thousands of people took to the streets of England’s capital on Sunday, April 23 to put their best foot forward and run the London Marathon.

Around 40,000 people took part at the 37th event including newcomer 23-year-old club runner, Josh Griffiths. The rising star, who has never run a 26.2 mile marathon before, overtook seasoned professionals in the men’s elite race before finishing overall in 13th place! 

If you were able to watch any of the participants run in their colourful running gear - whether it was from the comfort of your own home or on the sidelines - we’re sure the sea of runners, some of whom were running for charity and other's for personal bests, had you feeling pretty inspired.
