London Marathon Weather Forecast Predicts Race Could Be Hottest On Record

Chairman of London Marathon Events Ltd, Sir John Spurling, said, "We are deeply honoured that Her Majesty The Queen has accepted the invitation to start the 2018 London Marathon".

However, Farah's afternoon did not get off to a good start when he was involved in a weird incident where he seemed to miss his drinks bottle around the 10-mile mark and had to turn back for it. "I gave it all, 110 percent as I normally do", said Farah. Farah ran a great race in London but he did have problems re-fuelling when his drinks were confused with those of his rivals. 'The staff were helpful at the end but at the beginning they were trying to take a picture rather than giving me the drink'. It's weird that my endurance pace has got a lot better as I've got older. "When I was talking to the bike, I was telling them to tell the table to point at my drink".

Kipchoge's victory was the 14th by a Kenyan man in London and his victory completed a seventh London double by the east African nation after compatriot Vivian Cheruiyot had overhauled record-chasing favourite Mary Keitany for the biggest win of her burgeoning road race career, while Lily Partridge was the British woman home with a PB run.

Despite this, the Olympic gold medallist managed to become the fastest marathon runner in British history, crossing the line at a time of 2:06:21, comfortably clear of Steve Jones' 33-year-old British record of 2:07:13.

Previously, the hottest marathon was 22.7C back in 1996.

Race organisers had previously urged runners to reconsider aiming for personal bests and suggested ditching fancy dress costumes.

"My aim is to run another marathon in the autumn and then see what happens in the summer of 2019 in Doha". But, unlike 12 months ago when her sole pacemaker Caroline Chepkoech peeled off the course just beyond Tower Bridge, Keitany still had two pacemakers for assistance.

The leaders were well inside the course record time of one hour 28 minutes and 57 seconds during the first half of the race, in what were fine conditions for wheelchair racing.

"I've beaten some good runners".

British racer David Weir took first-place in the men's wheelchair race. The 38-year-old pipped Switzerland's Marcel Hug into second place, with Daniel Romanchuk of the United States third.
