London Marathon tracker 2022: How you can follow friends and family taking part



THE London Marathon is back as thousands prepare to take to the streets TODAY.

And now, thanks to an app developed by organisers Virgin, you can track the progress of loved ones throughout the 26.2 mile race.

How can I track runners at the 2022 London Marathon?

The TCS London Marathon app allows users to track specific runners and see the leaderboard for the whole race.

It boasts a variety of exciting features and lets you find and track participants along the race route, helping you to keep up with split times, finishing positions and results throughout the day.

You can see their progress at every 5k split and track their pace. The app will also predict what time your runner will reach the next 5k checkpoint based on their current pace.


The app is available on iOS and Android.

 The London Marathon app can tell participants' split times and also their position

What TV channel is the London Marathon on?

The BBC will be showing coverage of the London Marathon throughout the day.

It will be on BBC One and BBC Sport Online.

Viewers can also stream the entire action through the BBC iPlayer app.

What time does the race start?

The 2022 London Marathon will take place TODAY, October 2.

The races take place at:

  • 8:50am – Elite Wheelchair Races
  • 9.10am – Elite Women’s Race
  • 9.40am – The citizen’s
  • 9:40am – The Elite Men’s Race, British Athletics and England Athletics Marathon Championships and Mass Race


Who are the favourites?

Eliud Kipchoge will not be at the race this year and Sir Mo Farah is also out of the event due to injury.

Ethiopian reigning champion Ssay Lemma is therefore favourite for the men’s race, while Kenyan Jocyciline Jepkosgei is expected to take the women’s event.
