As in every race there can be only one Winner, but the London Marathon means a lot more than winning to many people, it is a chance to raise money for charities and good causes, such as the Six Masai tribesman who ran the London Marathon to raise money for water for their village in Tanzania, other people run to raise money for cancer research, RSPCA, Poverty Eradication and countless other charities and good causes.

The Londn Marathon is also about the whole experience the atmosphere, its about the taking part for many people and not necessary the time it takes them to finish, but what you have achieved by taking part.

London Marathon is also an important Travel Event, and a boost for London Tourism. Athletes and people from around the world travel to London to Paticipate in the Marathon, staying in Hostels, Bed and Breakfast, Private Apartments and Hotels Accommodation across the Capital city.
