The 2018 London Marathon will take place this Sunday with live TV coverage on the BBC.
Gabby Logan presents live coverage of the 38th staging of the annual event on the streets of London, as tens of thousands of runners take on the 26.2-mile course.
The men’s race will be the first for Mo Farah since the four-time Olympic gold medallist switched his focus from track events to the road.
Farah’s rivals include defending champion Daniel Wanjiru of Kenya, his compatriot Eliud Kipchoge and Ethiopia’s Kenenisa Bekele.
Mary Keitany will start as favourite in the women’s race, looking to equal Ingrid Kristiansen as the joint-most successful female athlete in the event’s history.
Coverage starts at 8.30am on BBC One and BBC One HD with live streaming via the BBC iPlayer.
Coverage moves to BBC Two at 2pm.
Highlights – presented by JJ Chalmers – will be shown on BBC Two from 7pm on Sunday night.
