All runners must attend the London Marathon Expo in order to collect their running number and timing chip. Failure to collect your race number will result in you unfortunately being unable to take part.
You’ll be required to show a form of photo identification in order to receive your event pack. If you’re unable to attend registration and wish to send a friend or relative to collect your event pack on your behalf, they must bring a form of photo identification for themselves and you as well as a signed letter of authorisation from you confirming that they can collect your event pack.

Please email email@example.com with your name, date of birth, telephone number, old address and new address. Your address details will then be changed in their system and a confirmation will be emailed to you when this has been done. Please do not call the helpdesk with changes of address as these can only be processed by email.
It goes without saying that it’s worth booking your accommodation sooner rather than later. Think about whether you want an easy journey to the starting zone (Greenwich Park) or if you want a shorter journey at the end (staying near the finish line in Central London).
