This Friday, the spotlight is on London for the Virgin 2010 London Marathon. [I thought it was the Flora London Marathon… Must have run out of money]
This year is set for a scorcher… by UK standards, at a balmy 22 Â°C, lets hope that none of the runners get heatstroke now (!)
Now follows the all knowing Wikipedia, with its weekly quote:
The London Marathon is a road marathon that has been held each year in London since 1981, usually in April. The race is currently sponsored by Virgin Money, as the Virgin London Marathon. Previously the event was sponsored by Flora (from 1996 to 2009) . The 2010 London Marathon will be held on Sunday 25 April.
