  • *** Official Live London Marathon Thread ***

    With London marathon about to start i thought i would start this thread for updates throughout the marathons.

    Women's race has just started. The top women's club-runners aren't running alongside the top elite runners so it looks strange seeing such a small field!

      coverage on bbc as poor as ever!! Hopefully eurosport will be better when that comes on.

      is there any coverage online?

        5km - 16:35 - Yamauchi, Mikitenko and Zhou are most prominent and there is a stretched group still involved.

          I'm watching the women's race on the interactive service and will move back to normal coverage when the men's race starts.

            Yamauchi - Zhou - Mikitenko and one of the Japanese (Okugawa or something like that) have about a 20-30m lead along with Kalovics (pace.)

              Second group contains Adere, Wami, Petrova, Zakharova, Ndereba, Komu and maybe one or two others but the leading group are pulling further away. Tomescu is off the second group.

              It's great to see Mara running aggressively. In 2007 she ran 2:25 in hot weather and in absolute isolation so she's clearly capable of sub-2:25.

              1st - 5:29
              2nd - 5:20
              3rd - 5:15
              4th - 5:25
              5th - 5:07
