Who is Running London Marathon 2022? Time, Ballot, Route Details!

Leah Williamson, Ellen White, and Jill Scott, three English Euro 2022 winners who are no strangers to the event after winning the Mini Marathon back in 2001, will formally kick off the marathon.

Due to a hip injury, four-time Olympic champion Mo Farah withdrew from this year’s elite men’s race earlier than planned. Brigid Kosgei, the current women’s world record holder and a two-time winner in London, was also forced to withdraw.

Eliud Kipchoge, who last week in Berlin shattered his own men’s marathon world record, is not participating but will be in London to award medals to the Mini Marathon winners on Saturday.

In his place, the defending London Marathon champion Sisay Lemma and his compatriot Kenenisa Bekele of Ethiopia are among the favourites for the male crown, while Joyciline Jepkosgei of Kenya, last year’s winner, and Yalemzerf Yehualaw of Ethiopia, who set the fastest debut time for a marathon, will compete for the female crown.

In the elite women’s race, Charlotte Purdue represents Great Britain, and in the elite men’s, Phil Sesemann will look to improve on his seventh-place showing from the previous year.

London Marathon 2022 Ballot

A certain number of spots for the London Marathon are subject to a balloting process each year. Running participants enter the lottery, and names are then picked at random for a spot. The ballot for the London Marathon in 2022 has ended, but the draw for 2023 will begin in early October. Entry is free; you only have to pay if you are chosen.

London Marathon 2022 Route details!

The phrase “easy” most amateurs would use to describe the 42.2km course is clearly a case of marathon relativity, but London is renowned as a marathon where participants may realistically seek personal best times.

The London Marathon’s flat course, which begins in Greenwich Park and travels through the Tower Bridge and Tower of London, makes it easy for spectators to take pictures of famous buildings.

A last flourish follows The Mall to Buckingham Palace along the River Thames route.
