Marathon|London 2016

On 24 of April ’16, Marathon in London is carrying out.

Marathon is performed every year in London. Many sportsmen participating struggling to win. The marathon itlself is very a difficult task. Only people who tried to run a longer distance are able to understand that.

Here is very crowdy on the streets, and many spectators tries to watch this event while lots of sportsmen do their best to win but as always, it’s a challenge.

Spectators are watching the show on the streets as the weather is pretty good. They’re gathered everywhere even sits on Victoria’s monument!

The number of gathered spectators is huge but no one should have a feeling being packed and all things are professionally coordinated. I would say, that even for photographers a few good places are available. The weather is nice and sun is operating beautifully trough the whole event.

The whole marathon is finishing next to Buckingham Palace where professional medical help is awaiting – just in case as sportsmen are really exhausted. It’s great that so many of them despite their extreme effort put onto marathon and are still able  to put smiles on their faces.

Runners have long to way to go, so they are supported by very well organized support teams. Supporters received needed liquids and medicaments which helped them to get rest quicker after this incredible effort.

and finally the WINNERS!

Below you can see some sportsmen faces which for those who are more familiar with this discpiline will tell who those guys are.

Unfortunately one runner had a heart disease and due the complications died afterwards. Our thoughts are with his family…
