The description of London Marathon 2018
This is the official app for the 2018 Virgin Money London Marathon. The app provides event week and Race Day information, as well as letting you find and track participants during the race, locate points of interest on the route, and keep up with split times, leaderboard positions and results throughout the day.
You can use the Virgin Money London Marathon 2018 mobile app, powered by TATA Consultancy Services, to locate distance markers, first aid points, drinks stations, live bands and pub venues along the course, so whether you’re a first-time spectator or a marathon veteran, you’ll get everything you need for the best possible experience on Race Day.
View event-related information such as how to get to the Virgin Money London Marathon Expo, Start and Finish locations, Race Day transport and travel advice for spectators.
FIND YOUR FRIENDS AND RELATIVES
Search for your ‘favourites’.
This feature allows you to find up to 20 of your favourite runners (friends, family, celebrities and elites) and follow their progress as they complete the race. You can see updates at every 5K split and track their pace. The app will also predict what time your runner will reach the next 5K checkpoint based on their average pace, allowing you to get to the best viewing points in time to support them.
App users tracking their favorite runners will receive a notification when a runner crosses the Start Line, halfway point and Finish Line.
Check the leaderboard to keep track of all the elite action, including the World Para Athletics Marathon World Cup.
