Outdoor meeting area

Once you have completed the gruelling 26.2 miles and been handed your well-deserved medal, we will be waiting to congratulate you on your amazing achievement at our outdoor meeting area. This will be at letter “O” on Horse Guards Road.

The finish area can get extremely busy so warn your supporters that it might take a while for you to get from the finish line to letter “O”. Often phone signal is poor around the finish area so make sure you have pre-arranged where you are going to meet your supporters.
