Meet our brand new Pace Team

Why do you run marathons?

It is a sport that’s good for me (health), good for others (charity) and accessible to all (inclusivity). It also allows me to compete against and better myself (you vs you). It is where I find peace.

What do you love about the TCS London Marathon?


The course, the city, the hidden crowds around the Cutty Sark, Canary Wharf – and the moment when you emerge from Blackfriars Tunnel. The event is home.

What are your top tips for runners?

Mentally break up your marathon into 5km sections and check in with yourself after each. See how you feel and push on if you’re feeling good – or adjust your goals if you need to. You’ll know what kind of race you’ll have after 10km. It will either be a great day or a long, good day!

If you need to walk or stop for any reason, such as for a mental health break, try do so once you’ve passed the 25km point. A 30-second reset can really help to revitalise your mind, body and performance.

In terms of practicalities, carry toilet paper to the Start Area (you’ll be the most popular person there) and a whistle while you run – in my opinion, it’s the best way to engage with the crowds. Carry a sweet treat with you, too, and reward yourself every 10km. You could also arrange for someone to meet you along the side of the route with a fizzy drink around 30km in. Energy!
