Meet Our Experts

From Start to Finish – we’ll help you every step of the way

After an amazing virtual event last year, that saw more than 8,500 of you tune into our online content, we can’t wait to create an even better Meet Our Experts experience for our participants this year – this time back in person in central London on Saturday 11 June 2022.

Book your slot now!

With so much to see and experience you can expect to be at Meet Our Experts for up to three hours. There are three different time slots to choose from when you book your ticket(s) so you can plan your day to suit you. Places are limited, so don’t delay and secure your spot today!

British Sign Language interpreters will be available at the event.

Once you’ve booked, your digital ticket(s) will be attached to your confirmation email. You’ll need to display your ticket(s) on your phone or show a printed copy in order to gain access when you arrive – so please remember to bring this along. We look forward to welcoming you!

Get kitted out with New Balance

The Royal Institution is just a stone’s throw from New Balance’s flagship store on Oxford Street – where your Meet Our Experts experience will continue in special breakout sessions with New Balance footwear experts. Here you’ll learn all about how to avoid injury and get the opportunity to ask any other questions.

There’ll also be the chance to have your gait checked, ask what to wear throughout your training and on the big day itself, and get an exclusive first look at New Balance’s TCS London Marathon training collection – and of course do some shopping!


Everything you need to know 

Back at The Royal Institution, a wide range of specialists in physiotherapy, psychology, nutrition and hydration, as well as past participants and London Marathon Events staff, will be on hand to answer all your queries. There will also be British Sign Language interpreters available should you need them.

Together, we’ll provide everything you need to know for both preparing for the event and getting to the Finish. We’re here to reassure you about what you’re doing right – and to suggest ways you could improve.

You can also drop by one of the many stands to find out more about some of our other sponsors and partners, including Buxton Water and Lucozade Sport and chat to their experts – plus Bloomsbury Books will be bringing some of their top health and fitness authors along for you to meet and question.

Check out charities

If you’re running for a charity, you can pick up tips on how to maximise the amount you raise from our new fundraising platform partner, Enthuse – they’ll be happy to show you how to kickstart your fundraising campaign. There will also be lots of charities represented at the event, so you can find out more about their causes and perhaps pick one to run for if you haven’t already!

If you’re running the TCS London Marathon for a charity, they'll let you know how you can book your Meet Our Experts ticket for free.
