London Marathon 2016: Our Favourite Moments
As many of you know the London Marathon was completed by thousands of runners yesterday, but what were the highlights of the day? Here are some of our favourite moments from this year:
• Marathon Marriage: The heart-warming moment a couple became engaged on the finish line of the London Marathon was captured by blogger Ashley Fryer. She made an appeal on social media to track down the couple, with the groom-to-be eventually finding the photos on Twitter.
• Prince Charming: Prince Harry was on hand to save the day as Olympian Sylvia Disley tripped during a medal presentation after the race. Disley appeared cheerful and unscathed by the incident - we know we’d feel the same after being helped by the Prince!
• Space Race: Tim Peake managed to complete the London Marathon from space, running on a treadmill on the International Space Station. His “shadow runner” on the ground also managed to complete the actual Marathon course in a time of 3 hours, 35 minutes and 21 seconds.
• Free Water Scramble: A video showing people scrambling to take free packs of water has gone viral on social media. After a majority of the runners had passed, crowds ran to grab the remaining free water bottles that the runners had left behind in a Black Friday style scramble!
