Vehicles and parking

Parking is restricted to authorised vehicles only – security measures will prevent other vehicles approaching the TCS London Marathon route.


Coach passes

Public transport is the best way to travel to the Start Line of the TCS London Marathon. However, if you’re planning to travel via coach, you must apply for a coach pass first.

Please note that you should only apply for a coach pass if absolutely necessary and you should not apply for more passes than you require. The issuing of TCS London Marathon coach passes is strictly controlled and you’ll need to provide a contact name, telephone number, organisation and delivery address when applying to support your request.

The deadline for coach pass applications is Tuesday 4 April 2023.

If your application for a coach pass is approved, it will be posted to you by Friday 14 April 2023. On Event Day, your coach driver must display the pass clearly on the vehicle's dashboard or windscreen with the required details visible on the face of the pass.

Coach routes to the Start Line will be published in our Event Guide, which will be available to download closer to the event. Please also be aware of the road closures that will be in operation.

Coach passes for international tour operators

If you are an international tour operator, please note that we do not post coach passes outside of the UK. Coach passes will be available for you to collect from the Sports Tours International desk at the TCS London Marathon Running Show at ExCel London from Thursday 20 April. Simply state ‘Sports Tours International’ in the address field when you apply for a coach pass.

You must bring valid ID with you to collect your coach pass at the Running Show.
