London Marathon 2017 may have come and gone, but the streets of London are already gearing up for the tournament’s return in 2018. From all indications, the event should make a return in April same as this year. The annual long-distance running event has grown in relevance ever since its inception in 1981 and as recent indications may suggest, it will only get better!
Asides the long history of the tournament, London Marathon ranks among the World Marathon Majors. The 2017 edition was a ‘blast’ and the new sponsorship deal with Virgin Money only suggests that the 2018 edition will offer more to London citizens and tourist alike.
