London Marathon Mania!

With the Flora London Marathon just 5 days away we thought it was high time we peered over the edge of the sofa (no hurty feet here!) and had a little look at what's going on this week in preparation for the big event: 26.2 miles of running around London, silly costumes optional.

Tomorrow marks the start of the Flora London Marathon Expo. Held over four days at the ExCel Centre, the show is set to attract 70,000 visitors and will have stands from the world's leading sports manufacturers, online partner realbuzz.com (find lots of pre-race tips on their site) and expert speakers as well as hosting the famous Flora London Marathon Pasta Party for super carbo-loading prior to the race.

Every runner has to attend to collect their race number but the show is open to all and entry is FREE. The show runs Wednesday - Saturday, Opening hours and full information can be found here.

Tomorrow in London Marathon Mania - interviews with London runners.
