The London Mini Marathon takes place on the Saturday 1st October before the London Marathon on 2nd October and covers the last 2.6km of the course and finishing on the Mall and the athletes will be the first to cross the finish line before the elite athletes cross the finish line.
Over the years the Mini London Marathon has launched the careers of international athletics stars including Laura Muir, Keely Hodgkinson and Josh Kerr – not to mention Sir Mo Farah, who won the Mini Marathon three times.
Paralympic medallists Hannah Cockroft and Kare Adenegan are also both former winners of the Mini Marathon, along with Paralympic gold medallist David Weir – who has won the London Marathon a record eight times – and two-time London Marathon winner Shelly Woods.
Following this great tradition, the 2022 TCS Mini London Marathon championships will be a brilliant chance for young athletes to compete among the best new talent in British road racing.
