Where we'll be over the race weekend

When it comes to the London Marathon we can’t wait to cheer you on and meet you over the race weekend. Check out our information below to make sure you know where we’ll be.

London Marathon Expo

We’ll be at the Expo all day from the Thursday to the Saturday. This is where you need to go and pick up your race number and timing chip for the big day. Once you’ve done this we’ll be at stand 171 in the main exhibition area so do pop along to see us, we’d love to wish you good luck. The expo is open at the following times:

  • Wednesday 18 April 11am-8pm

  • Thursday 19 April 10am-8pm

  • Friday 20 April 10am-8pm

  • Saturday 21 April 9am-5pm

Please be aware, Saturday at the expo is the busiest day and there are always queues to get in, so do factor this into your plans. More information about the expo can be found on the London Marathon Expo website  .

Our Marie Curie cheer points 

We’ll have four dedicated Marie Curie cheer points along the route to make sure you feel extra supported as you take on this incredible challenge.

While we’ll be hard to miss as our cheer points will be covered in yellow, we’ve detailed where we will be below so you can look out for us*.

  • Mile 6.75 - Greenwich area - we'll be cheering you on from 10am-12.15pm

  • Mile 12.5 - Tower Bridge - we'll be cheering you on from 10.30am-1.30pm

  • Mile 18 - Docklands area - we'll be cheering you from 11am-2.45pm

  • Mile 22 - Shadwell on the south side of The Highway A1203 - 11am -3pm
  • Mile 24.5 - Embankment (both sides of the route) - 12pm-4.45pm

If you’ve got friends, family or colleagues coming along why not get them to come and join us at our Marie Curie cheer points, they’ll be kitted out with all things yellow plus we’ll have banger sticks and whistles to help them make as much noise as possible.

*Please note while we aim to be at these exact locations sometimes on the day this is not possible so just look out for our yellow flags and balloons which will help you spot us!

Cheer packs

If your friends and family can’t make it along to our dedicated cheer points we can send them out some cheer materials so they have everything they need to spur you on wherever they decide to support you. If you'd like one of these please email event.delivery@mariecurie.org.uk and let us know how many supporters you have coming along and the best address for us to post these too. We’ll be sending them out on Monday 26 March.

After the race

Our team of volunteers will be near the finishing area to meet you and direct or walk with you up to our post-race reception.  

We’d love for you to come along to our post-race reception. It's being held at the Amba Charing Cross Hotel which is just above Charing Cross station and only a short walk from the finish line.

We will be here to welcome all runners with refreshments, a place to get showered, changed and a well-deserved massage (which hopefully your legs will be very thankful for!). It’s a great place to come and have a rest, meet back up with your family and for us to say a huge thank you before heading home.

You’ll find us here from 12pm until 5.30pm and the address is: Amba Charing Cross Hotel, Strand, London, WC2N 5HX.
