Virgin London Marathon 2018

Sunday 22 April 2018

Virgin London Marathon 2018

The Virgin Money London Marathon is taking place on Sunday 22 April.  

We're running extra trains to help everyone get where they need to be. 

Travel advice 

The easiest way to get to the start areas is by train - 

  • Blue start – travel to Blackheath station from Charing Cross, Waterloo East, London Bridge or Victoria.
  • Red start – travel to either Greenwich station or Maze Hill station from Cannon Street, or change at London Bridge. 
  • Green start – travel to Maze Hill station from Cannon Street, or change at London Bridge. 

Trains are likely to be busier than normal so we recommend you allow extra time for your journey. 

London Bridge station is expected to be particularly busy from 8.00 am to 8.30 am when a large number of runners will be changing trains to reach the Blackheath start line. We advise spectators to take a later train to avoid the rush. 

Ticket arrangements 

Runners can travel for free on Southeastern services from the following London stations to their starting points - London Bridge, Cannon Street, Charing Cross, Waterloo East and Victoria, but need to get a ticket for the rest of their journey. 

Just show your race number to a member of Southeastern staff at the gate line to claim your free travel.

Unfortunately we’re not able to extend this to spectators, who will need to buy a ticket before they board.
