Best Answer

The London marathon ( I am watching it on TV as I type this !) starts on Blackheath in SE London. It is run over 26 miles 385 yards. This distance has nothing to do with Phidipides & the battle of Marathon. It was the distance run from Windsor to White city in the London Olympics in 1908.
